As the complexity of medication therapy has increased for hospitalized patients, the importance of skilled pharmacists and advanced pharmacy services in hospitals has become critical. In August 2008, the Hospital Pharmacy Section of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) will host a Global Conference on the Future of Hospital Pharmacy, bringing hundreds of delegates from over 100 nations to Basel, Switzerland to address issues that will shape the future of hospital pharmacy practice.

Lee Vermeulen, who chaired the Steering Committee for the Conference, presents a summary of the Conference consensus statements. In addition, a global survey of hospital pharmacy practice was conducted by the Vermeulen in preparation for the Conference, and a summary of the results are presented.
