HPE LIVE is back for a 5th year and we’ll be bringing you the same high quality content and speakers you have come to expect from a Hospital Pharmacy Europe conference. Returning to Olympia London on 21st November, this year’s event is split into five streams each focused on a particular area of hospital pharmacy. This year’s stream titles are Formulary, Cardiovascular & Diabetes, Dermatology & Rheumatology, Gastroenterology & Hepatology, and Safety in Oncology.

As the world of hospital pharmacy evolves, HPE LIVE continues to grow, bringing together the latest updates in regulation, prescribing and best practice so you can continue to provide a safe and high quality service to your patients. Run by the team behind the Hospital Pharmacy Europe journal, the event will address the specific learning needs of hospital pharmacists across the UK. It is “a great opportunity to debate frontline challenges that the profession faces [in order] to provide and improve the service to patients and clinical teams.”

Registrations are now open - visit the website for more information and to secure your free place!

Call for Posters

We are also delighted to announce the return of the Call for Posters and the Poster Zone at HPE LIVE. We are inviting all hospital pharmacy teams to submit posters that showcase the inspiring projects you are involved in. If you or your team have done something worth sharing then get in touch!

We want to hear from teams working across the UK who are involved in research, innovation, and best practice. Successful entries will be invited to display their poster at the event on 21st November.

For more details on how to submit your work and to view the judging panel, take a look at our website.

Good luck!
