Revised FIP Basel Statements on the Future of Hospital Pharmacy (Approved September 2014, Bangkok, Thailand, as revisions of the initial 2008 version)
(2015; 6 pages)


Hospital pharmacists from around the world met in Basel, Switzerland, in 2008, to discuss the future of their sector. This historic two-day meeting, hosted by FIP's Hospital Pharmacy Section, came to a consensus over 75 statements reflecting their vision of practice: the Basel Statements.

The Basel Statements cover all areas of the medicine use process in hospitals, from procurement to monitoring.

In 2014, hospital pharmacists again gathered, this time in Bangkok, Thailand, to input into future practice through updating the statements. The latest version of the Basel Statements was launched in September 2015. There are now 65 statements.
