The common training framework – the educational tool for hospital pharmacy improvement
The European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP), and its 35 member country platforms are creating a Common Training Framework for hospital pharmacy education in Europe.
The overriding motivation for creating the common training framework (CTF) for hospital pharmacy specialisation is “to enhance the quality of, safety of, and equity of access to, patient care in every European country”. Underlining this motivation are five key benefits that highlight why a CTF is so important for EAHP and its members. These include the patient benefit, improving labour mobility and the benefits that arise from that, a benchmark for all European countries to strive for, a vital strategic tool for realizing the European Statements of Hospital Pharmacy and the culmination of decades of EAHP and member advocacy.
The CTF framework will therefore support the raising of standards in hospital pharmacy practice and thereby enhance the quality of, safety of, and equity of access to, patient care in every European country.
