Irish Institute of Pharmacy Seminar 2015

Supporting the Pharmacy Journey

The Irish Institute of Pharmacy (IIOP) launched its strategy “Supporting the Pharmacy Journey” at a seminar in the RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland) on Wednesday 23rd September. As part of the seminar, pharmacy leaders from Ontario and the UK shared their perspectives on the new continuing professional development (CPD) system.

A number of Irish pharmacists who are leading pharmacy at a European level also presented as part of the seminar. The full one-day event was streamed live to allow pharmacists around the country join and watch the activities.

The event was also recorded and is now available to watch here, along with each of the speaker’s presentations where applicable.
