Section of Pharmacy Practice
The Section of Pharmacy Practice aims to bring together pharmacists practising in the Czech Republic. The Section has the most numerous member base of the CzPS.
RNDr. PhMr. Ivan Anděl from Zlín was a long standing Chairman of the Section in the 1980s and 1990s. Since 1993 PharmDr. Pavel Grodza from Příbor has been the Chairman of the Section. The Section organizes the annual event Pharmacy Days (www.lekarnickedny.estranky.cz) which take place in different cities and towns in the Czech Republic. This tradition dates back to 1985, initiated by a team working with RNDr. PhMr. Vladimír Jeřábek, a prominent expert at pharmacy practice in the Czechoslovakia.
The Section also coordinates the activities of Regional Groups of Pharmacists and currently provides interim replacement of activities of the Section of Pharmacy Assistants and the Section of Social Pharmacy.
There are 5 members working in the Committee of the Section, elected for four years. The Section actively comments on the legislation related to the field of pharmacy, organizes CPD events for pharmacists, i.e. mainly symposia and seminars. The section currently has about 400 members. Besides practising pharmacists, there are also pharmacists from academia and Institute for Postgraduate Education in Healthcare, and a few members of medical profession.
