The congress theme is “Transforming outcomes! New ways for pharmacy to provide better health care!” – And while being inspired to do just that you could be earning CE credits. Your country’s professional body can advise you on how many credits you can gain. Conference Topics are : Topic A - From bench to bedside: Advancing pharmaceutical care : Topic A focuses on new technologies and approaches to achieve individualised therapy, including emerging ethical dimensions associated with their implementation. Advancements in drug discovery, formulation, compounding, delivery systems and mathematical modelling can be used to translate such innovations into better outcomes in populations and individual patients. Topic B - Partners in health : Topic B recognises that pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists cannot operate in a vacuum if the goal is to transform patient outcomes. New collaborative practices, research and educational models are needed among traditional health care professionals, but also must be expanded to include members. Topic C - Empowered for health : The main emphasis of topic C is training and leadership development of the current and next generation of pharmacy and pharmaceutical science practitioners. Efforts under this topic include innovations in disseminating new knowledge through the identification of key competencies or skill sets, along with outstanding approaches to effective and ethical communication, to enable life-long learning. The transformation of patient outcomes can only be achieved with a strong pharmaceutical care workforce empowered to develop and implement the latest advancements in pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. Topic D - Targeting special interests : Topic D will target special interests in the different fields of pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. Abstract Submission Deadline : • Submission deadline for those wishing to use the mentoring programme : Mar 01, 2018. • Submission deadline for those who do not wish to use the mentoring programme : Apr 01, 2018.
