Description of the training

The Hospital Gregorio Marañon will provide training on the following Statements:

4.3 Hospital pharmacists should have access to the patients’ health record. Their clinical interventions should be documented in the patients’ health record and analysed to inform quality improvement interventions.

5.1 The “seven rights” (the right patient, right medicine, right dose, right route, right time, right information and right documentation) should be fulfilled in all medicines-related activities in the hospital.

5.5 Hospital pharmacists should help to decrease the risk of medication errors by disseminating evidence-based approaches to error reduction including computerised decision support.

6.4 Hospital pharmacists should actively engage in and publish research, particularly on hospital pharmacy practice. Research methods should be part of undergraduate and postgraduate training programmes for hospital pharmacists.

Outline of the training experience provided by the Hospital Gregorio Marañon:

"The rotation will be very active and practical. A project will be assessable to the learner. Different pharmacists will show their daily job, their procedures, how to monitor and create improvement. The exchange pharmacist will have to give a session".
