The Continuing Pharmaceutical Education program at Hamad General Hospital (HGH) has been endorsed as an accredited provider of continuing pharmacy education by the US-based Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
The Program is the second in the region to be awarded this status, according to Dr. Haleema Al Tamimi, Director of Pharmacy Department at HGH.
“Accreditation by the ACPE is the result of the Pharmacy team’s hard work and dedication and will have a direct impact on the delivery of safe, effective and compassionate care,” said Dr. Al Tamimi.
Dr. Al Tamimi, said, “Other pharmacy departments within Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) are seeking the same accreditation.” “Pharmacists from HMC and other healthcare organizations can participate in, and make use of, the Continuing Pharmaceutical Education program activities,” said Dr. Al Tamimi.
ACPE has been in operation since 1932 and is the national agency for the accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy and for providers of continuing pharmacy education. The Council’s mission is to ensure and enhance excellence in the pharmacy education domain.
