The GLF Serbia, translated from the GLF Croatia, will be piloted from 15th March 2011 with a view to rolling out the Framework nationally. This collaboration between Croatia and Serbia in implementing improvements in pharmaceutical care will serve as the starting point for future projects.
By implementing the GLF, Subotica Pharmacy has become a pioneer in leading the way towards the model of a globally applicable evaluation instrument and the development of pharmacist competencies.
To share their work and invite others to present their experiences, Pharmacy Subotica recently organised a symposium attended by around 120 participants from Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia and Hungary. Eminent international speakers from the FIP-WHO-UNESCO Global Pharmacy Education Taskforce and the University of Belgrade were invited. The report of the Symposium can be found here.
