The 30th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Pharmaceutical Health Care and Sciences will be held between September 20 (Sun.) and 22 (Tue./ holiday), 2020, at Nagoya Congress Center, ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel Grand Court Nagoya.
The main theme of the 30th annual conference is “Improvement of pharmacist skills for supporting patients and medical cares”. The disease pattern changed radically in the super-aging society. At the same time, advanced medical care has been integrated into daily pharmaceutical care one after another and the treatments are diversified and sophisticated with the advancement of medical and pharmaceutical sciences. In response to the changes in social and medical environment, it is necessary to promote interdisciplinary approach to health care and interprofessional collaboration as well as the task sharing and shifting. We pharmacists are required to have solid professional skills (pharmacist skills) for supporting patients and medical cares. We plan to discuss the pharmacist skills from 4 different points of view, Pharmaceutical Care, Education, Research and Social Contribution, to expand the role of pharmacists in the Reiwa era.
We believe that this annual conference will provide an opportunity to have a satisfying improvement and a wonderful encounter.
We look forward to meeting all of you in Nagoya.
