The Common Training Framework (CTF) is a legal tool to achieve automatic professional qualification recognition across EU countries, meaning that learning outcomes and competencies received in one European country are recognized throughout Europe.
National COmpetent Authorities
A common training framework for Hospital Pharmacists in Europe will imply moving towards a safer and more advanced delivery of hospital pharmacy services within European Health systems. EAHP is approaching national competent authorities as the framework will not come into legal existence without the support of the competent authorities
A common training framework for Hospital Pharmacists in Europe will imply moving towards a safer, cheaper and more advanced delivery of hospital pharmacy services.
Education Providers are a key stakeholder when making CTF a reality. Adopting CTF will raise the standards of the profession, increasing the prestige of the education providers providing hospital pharmacy specialisation training and education.
EAHP believes that CTF will be beneficial not only for the hospital pharmacy profession but also for the community pharmacy profession.
As all EAHP projects, improving patient care was in the centre of all discussions when developing CTF. Implementing CTF will allow European Health systems to advance towards a safer and more advanced delivery of hospital pharmacy services.
Students are key element of CTF as they will be the ones applying for the hospital pharmacy specialisation. CTF will imply more mobility as students and as graduates, allowing hospital pharmacist to practice the profession in other countries without having to go through the specialisation again.
