GRiP is pleased to announce that the Paediatric Pharmacy Team at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, is running its 6th International Masterclass titled “Foundation in Paediatric Pharmaceutical Care”.


The course, which will run between 13th and 15th October in London, provides a unique opportunity to learn from our top rated pharmacy team and visit patient bedsides at our state of the art Evelina Children's Hospital, providing valuable insight into the role of paediatric pharmacists within the hospital setting.


The masterclass is specially designed by the course directors to provide an update on the latest developments in paediatric pharmacy and aims to discuss best practice methods in the safe use of medicines in children.
