Organised by FIPEd in collaboration with the FIP Academic Pharmacy Section, the FIP Community Pharmacy Section, the FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section, the FIP SIG on Pharmacy Practice Research, International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation and FIP’s Young Pharmacists Group
This session will share models, systems and resources for themes involving professional recognition and credentialing to transform pharmaceutical care. For pharmacists to be fit for practice, they need to engage with continuous professional development in order to become lifelong learners and to have their advanced practice recognised (in a generalist or a specialist area). The process in which that may occur may not be clearly stated once you start practising. This session aims to showcase examples of professional recognition and credentialing that have made an impact in pharmaceutical care, examples of global cooperation and how networks can be useful for professional development. Participants will be invited to engage in a brainstorm activity to identify collaborations to help solve national challenges in these activities. This session will provide the opportunity for FIP members and member organisations to share their best practices and to engage in a global network for transnational professional recognition, across all settings of practice; it will be a mix of leading-edge presentations and participant engagement activities.
