FIP 2018

The theme of the 78th FIP World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is 'Pharmacy: Transforming outcomes!'.

The 2018 FIP congress in Glasgow, Scotland, brought together pharmacy practitioners and pharmaceutical scientists from around the world to consider ways of extending the role of pharmacists so that they play a full part in ensuring patients, and health systems, achieve full benefit from the medicines people take.

This is the first time that the FIP World Congress has been held in the UK for nearly 40 years. The last time was in 1979, making this a truly unique learning opportunity for pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists in Great Britain.

UK healthcare company RB was Gold Sponsor of this year’s congress.
