Series 2 Schedule

2.7 Pharmacist vaccinators and patient safety: FIP DG 19 Patient Safety

18th November 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 – “Pharmacist Vaccinators and Patient Safety” – is an interview format that focuses on the FIP Development Goal 19: Patient Safety from the perspective of vaccination by a pharmacist. The role of pharmacists in delivering safe vaccinations; participation in vaccination monitoring and adverse event reporting, and the role of improving vaccination rates as a method of reducing overall harm caused by preventable disease.

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.
