About us and our objectives
Our vision for hospital pharmacy is set out in the revised Basel Statements on the future of hospital pharmacy. This document contains consensus statements by hospital pharmacists from around the world that were initially developed at the inaugural FIP Global Conference on the Future of Hospital Pharmacy in Basel, Switzerland, in 2008. Find out more about the Basel Statements here. To take a self-assessment survey of your hospital's pharmacy services compared to the Basel Statements please go to https://fiphsa.com.
The FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section Strategic Plan 2022-2027 to implement this vision can be found here.
FIP HPS strategic goals:
• Support, facilitate and enable sharing of resources for hospital pharmacy
• Set standards for hospital pharmacy practice and workforce (Basel Statements) underpinned by patient safety

• Focus on global needs (affecting all countries independent on levels of hospital pharmacy practice while highlighting best practices in hospital pharmacy
