EAHP President Joan Peppard will present the EAHP’s common training framework (CTF) project during the third keynote speech - “Introducing the Common Training Framework (CTF)” – at the 22nd Congress of the EAHP, 22nd to 24th March 2017, in Cannes. The keynote will focus on competency-based approaches to training, staff development and assessment which are increasingly viewed as a central strategy for improving the effectiveness of those who provide care.
This presentation will describe the potential benefits and risks of a competency-based approach to hospital pharmacy advanced practice and it will illustrate the progress of competence-based approaches in Europe where barriers to mutual recognition of education and training systems still exist for many professions including hospital pharmacy. Furthermore, a quality approach to the ongoing management of such a framework will also be considered.
At the end of the seminar participants should
- Have an increased awareness of the competencies required of a hospital pharmacist;
- Understand the potential for development of a European recognition of the title ' hospital pharmacist'; and
- Recognise the importance of quality assurance of post graduate education.
