Welcome to the website of the National Association of Hospital Pharmacy Technicians of Ireland
Founded in 1997 the National Association of Hospital Pharmacy Technicians of Ireland, formerly known as 'National Association of Hospital Pharmaceutical Technicians', is the national voluntary association seeking to both ensure and continually improve upon professional, educational and practice standards for Hospital Pharmacy Technicians.
The NAHPT aims to:
National Association of Hospital Pharmacy Technicians Poster Competition 2013
Actavis Ireland in conjunction with the NAHPT are delighted to bring you details of the 2013 NAHPT Poster Competition, which is proudly sponsored by Actavis for the 3rd consecutive year.
We would like to ask you to submit a poster for the competition this year.
This year the prize for the winning entry is an Apple Ipad.
The student prize is €100
The poster competition is an ideal way to share information between Hospital Pharmacy Technicians working in the field.
Perhaps you have been involved in some change process in work that you want to tell people about?
Or may have discovered a better way of doing things that adds value to your work?
Or maybe you just want others to learn about the work that you are doing and to demonstrate how pharmacy technicians are an integral part of hospital pharmacy services?
Then the poster is a must for you!
Speaking about the NAHPT Poster Competition, Actavis Hospital Business Unit Manager, Caroline Fitzgerald, said, “Actavis are delighted again this year to sponsor the competition.
At Actavis, we view the poster competition as being an excellent way of sharing information and ideas between Hospital Pharmacy Technicians.
We feel that these ideas are necessary for the constant development of Hospital Pharmacies throughout the country. The Actavis team is committed to supporting and working in partnership with Hospital Pharmacy Technicians and are committed to sponsoring the NAHPT Poster Competition for the foreseeable future.
This year we are also delighted to sponsor the Student Poster Award. As these are the technicians of the future, we feel it is vital to support and encourage their development from as early in their careers as possible. Each year we look forward to sponsoring this competition and meeting Technicians at the NAHPT Conference and Awards ceremony”
The prize for the winning entry is an Apple Ipad.
The student prize is €100
Last year’s prize was won by Ms. Marie McLaughlin, University Hospital Galway.
Ms. McLaughlin’s poster entitled “Towards a leaner dispensary service. The UHG Experience…” detailed how UHG has coped under the pressure of employment embargoes and the absence of an assistance grade in dispensary operations.
Attached are guidelines for posters submissions.
Closing date for abstracts is midday on the 5th of April.
The winning posters will be announced at this year’s NAHPT Conference, which takes place on the 27th of April in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Santry.
