In 2008, 348 pharmacists from 98 different countries gathered in Basel, Switzerland for the Global Conference on the Future of Hospital Pharmacists, hosted by the Hospital Pharmacy Section of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP). This seminal event, which followed a sustained period of preparation by means of a Global Survey of Hospital Pharmacy Practice and the commissioning of six evidence summaries, developed a set of consensus statements on the future of hospital pharmacy. The initial list of 75 Basel Statements were intended to be adapted for local use. As the coverage in the SA Pharmaceutical Journal at the time noted : "Taking the Basel Statements from global consensus positions to living documents, to effective application in action, and to ultimately achieving better outcomes for patients will require continued effort over many years. Every hospital pharmacist can be part of that effort through local action."
