EAHP Academy Seminar 2015: From medicines reconciliation to medicines optimisation

From 11th to 12th September 2015, over 50 hospital pharmacists from 30 countries gathered in Zagreb, Croatia for a focused weekend of education development on the theme

"From medicines reconciliation to medicines optimisation".

Experts speakers from across Europe addressed diverse aspects of medicines reconciliation services, including:

  • medicines reconciliation on admission; 
  • lessons learnt for successful implementation of medicines reconciliation; 
  • integrated medicines management with a focus on the discharge process; and, 
  • structured patient interviews on error incidence and severity. 

The Academy Seminar is an annual educational event facilitated and provided by the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists to its member organisations. The aim of the Academy is to foster research and educational activities to allow hospital pharmacists from all European countries to develop their activities in a general setting of public health in their country or across the continent. Medicines reconciliation forms an important part of the vision for the hospital pharmacy profession expressed through the 44 European Statements of Hospital Pharmacy.

Presentations from the event are available online here.
