4th Annual Global Healthcare Conference (GHC 2015)

Funding for health and medical facilities are vital to the health and well-being of the public. But most importantly, health and medical researchers and developers serve the task of advancing health care and medical science through the study and proper dissemination of information, in order to improve the state of health care service of any country.

GCC Pharmaceutical Congress

Dubai, UAE

Description  

As pharmaceutical care moves to a more patient centered model it becomes extremely important to ensure an adequate and professional pharmacy practice. Pharmacists, in one hand, need to ensure maximum use of their skills by embarking on a culture of lifelong learning. On the other hand, it becomes evident that all members of the healthcare system need to co-operate to ensure planning, implementation and monitoring of a therapeutic plan that focuses on effective patient outcome. Therefore and following last year’s successful platform, the GCC Pharmaceutical Congress reinforces the importance of collaboration and dialogue between Policy Makers, Stakeholders, Regulators and Pharmaceutical experts. By sharing up-to-date information and highlighting key solutions with the ultimately purpose to drive forward the GCC Pharmaceutical sector. The Program will include presentations and interactive discussions that will cover key topics such as: Improving Pharmacy Manufacturing, Distribution and Practice; Reviewing Regulations and Compliance; Supporting Excellence by way of Continuous Education Programs and ensuring Medication Safety through the use of Technology and Innovation.
