Pharmacists` Society of Latvia (LFB) is delighted to invite Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian pharmacists to meet in Latvia, Riga for the 23rd time in BaltPharm Forum2020!
Theme: “Availability of pharmaceutical care in our continuously changing environment”.
The event will take place on 24-26 April, 2020, Riga, Latvia
At present there are intensive discussions in Latvia how to balance pharmaceutical care and access to medicines, pharmacies and finances. The pharmacist must be able to comply with the requirements for the distribution of medicinal products, business interests and at the same time provide qualitative consultation behind the pharmacy counter. We would like to share the experience what level pharmaceutical care pharmacist is currently able to provide, and what is most important for the patient. It is important to highlight the role of pharmacist in health care system in the middle of high tension in the socio-economic environment as well as finding a solution for payment possibilities of pharmaceutical care.
We think we all are interested in the question of ownership of pharmacies in Estonia – will this resolve for the benefit of the pharmacist? In Latvia, pharmaceutical policy makers are guided by the achievements of Lithuania and Estonia, discussing drug prices and the transparent situation in availability of medicines.
What kind of pharmaceutical care is required for society? Who has to pay for pharmaceutical care? What is and supposed to be the role of the government to regulate the pharmaceutical sector in Baltic States and what are the pharmacists’ expectations and desires?
24 April, Friday, we will gather at the National Conference, which will be held in Latvian, but 25 April, Saturday is the day of the main Forum, where the working language is English.
Application to the Forum is scheduled for 1 April!
