FIP Development Goal 11 Workforce Element 

Globally, we will have: 

Evidence of the impact of the pharmaceutical workforce within health systems and health improvement.

Mechanisms 

  • Engagement with systems to measure the impact of the pharmaceutical workforce on health improvement and healthcare outcomes. Links with needs-based education, training and workforce planning.
  • Gather continuous data points to monitor the performance of the pharmaceutical workforce.
  • Ideally, this should be linked with strategies to enhance workforce intelligence.

FIP Development Goal 10 Workforce Element 

Globally, we will have: 

Evidence of the impact of pharmaceutical services in terms of health outcomes and quality of life, improved efficiency of health systems and sustainability.

Mechanisms 

  • Recognise, assess and take accountability for the societal impact of pharmaceutical services in terms of health outcomes and quality of life, improved efficiency and resilience of health systems, availability and accessibility of services, equity and equitability, and overall sustainability (economic, organisational and environmental).
  • Implement systems to measure and monitor service impact and outcomes that are based on agreed definitions and standards, quality and performance indicators, real-world outcomes metrics (including public and patient-reported outcomes) and other data and service assessment intelligence for all professional services, from essential to advanced and specialised.
  • Enable and promote practice-based research, health impact assessment and evaluation mechanisms that facilitate practitioner-led evidence generation.
  • Implement systems to measure cost effectiveness, including cost-effectivity analysis, cost-benefit and cost–utility analysis, and budgetary impact of pharmacists’ professional services.
  • Promote the transparent and rigorous exchange and publication of impact assessment data for pharmaceutical services to inform practice development, policy and funding strategies at local, national and international level.

FIP Development Goal 11 Workforce Element 

Globally, we will have: 

Strategies and programmes in place to enable timely access to safe, effective, and affordable medical products.

Mechanisms 

  • Monitor and report on the positive and negative consequences of new medical products.
  • Use of transparent evaluation processes to establish value of outcomes of pharmacy practice service delivered or pharmaceutical science outcomes delivered.
  • Promote scientific research to continuously improve patient care using innovative technologies.
  • Disseminate the contributions of pharmaceutical sciences underpinning sustained success in drug discovery, development, and utilisation.

FIP “Setting goals for the decade ahead” | Episode 21 - FINALE | FIP DG 11: Impact & outcomes Thumbnail
December 15, 2021

The FIP Development Goals Digital Programme “Setting goals for the decade ahead” is a comprehensive online event series providing coverage of the 21 goals over 21 events in 2021. Starting in March, the 21 digital events aim to provide description, direction and context for each specific goal, with a global plan for the decade ahead and how each nation, within each region can identify and prioritise which goals are the priorities and how the goals can support developments and transformation for them.

This programme is all about engaging the profession and supporting the profession to deliver in relevant and purposeful ways. By engaging our profession, members & colleagues everywhere with these relevant and applicable goals for the decade ahead, we can provide tools, monitoring and evaluation through data evidence, and identifying priorities across practice, science, and workforce & education.

Pharmacy Practice Research Virtual Summer Meeting for PhD students, Postdoctoral fellows and supervisors

Pharmacy Practice Research Virtual Summer Meeting for PhD students, Postdoctoral fellows and supervisors Thumbnail
June 24, 2021

The FIP Pharmacy Practice Research SIG (PPR SIG) was created with the main scope of increasing pharmacy practice contributions to global health through the provision of greater access to the latest high-quality international pharmacy practice research. The PPR SIG also aims to cultivate an international forum for the dissemination of quality, international pharmacy practice research for all stakeholders and stimulate communication, discussion, networking, and collaboration between international pharmacy practice stakeholders.

Based on this objective, this PPR virtual summer meeting aims to increase the quality and quantity of pharmacy practice research by exchanging and disseminating information at an international level. New networks and collaborations will be established on major themes for experienced researchers and higher degree students.
