Background: Research shows that hospital pharmacists can reduce patients' length of stay, medication errors and adverse events. However, hospital pharmacy practices vary greatly around the world. To standardise practice and ensure optimal patient outcomes, the hospital section of FIP facilitated the development of the first global consensus..
