benefits of Implementing CTF
A common training framework for Hospital Pharmacists in Europe will imply moving towards a safer, cheaper and more advanced delivery of hospital pharmacy services.
Raising standards nationally for the hospital pharmacy profession, thus, raising standards on the delivery of pharmacy services and therefore the hospital services;
Better outcomes for patients as professional standards have been raised;
Providing long-term possibility of simplified and less labour intensive qualification recognition processes;
Improving mobility for hospital pharmacists (therefore, allowing them to learn from other health systems and bringing back this knowledge);
Improving cooperation and reciprocity between healthcare systems and national hospital pharmacy associations;
Reducing costs as higher quality implies lower costs (less medication errors, shorter waiting lists…);
Knowledge and expertise sharing by improving mobility among European hospital pharmacists.
