"Improving patient outcomes: a shared responsibility" is the theme of the 18th Congress of EAHP which will take place in Paris, France, from 13-15 March 2013. This topic covers two of the major goals of our association: the commitment to the patient and the importance of collaboration with other health professionals. It is therefore a great pleasure to me inviting you to be a part of this event with the successful congresses of last years.
Hospital pharmacists are the stakeholders in optimising the medication of inpatients, but their responsibility does not end at the interface to primary care. To hospital pharmacists, seamless care means that communicating with our colleagues and the doctors working in the primary sector is crucial. Due to the fact that this is prone to errors, the congress will focus on the different aspects of the interface with the scope of helping all participants to understand the origin of faults. Do not miss such an opportunity.
