Series 2 Schedule

2.1 Vaccination from specialist practice to every day practice: FIP DG 4 Advanced & Specialist Development

28th October 2020

14:00 – 15:30 CET


FIP is excited to announce a new initiative entitled “Transforming Vaccination Globally and Regionally.” This initiative involves a three-part series of 8 online events each, and is the first FIP transformational outcome-based online programme of its kind, culminating in the signing of a historical commitment by FIP and member organisations to transform vaccinations globally and regionally.

In this episode – “Vaccination: From Specialist Practice to Everyday Practice” – is an interview format that focuses on the FIP Development Goal 4: Advanced & Specialist Development from the perspective of vaccination by a pharmacist. We discuss the process required to take vaccination by pharmacists from a specialized field that few pharmacists deliver in some jurisdictions, to a standard part of pharmacists’ care in all settings and locations.

About the Series: The second of three series is composed of 8 episodes that focus on The FIP Development Goals from the perspective of vaccination. The new FIP Development Goals and the agenda of improving vaccination worldwide come together in this series of interviews that outline how pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists will deliver on the promise of improved vaccination rates worldwide.

Series 2 will identify the alignment of the goal of improved vaccination rates worldwide through the use of the pharmacist workforce with the FIP Development Goals.
