Cankarjev dom – Cultural and Congress Centre Ljubljana will be a venue of the upcoming 48th ESCP Smyposium, titled »The Digital Revolution: Supporting clinical pharmacy through e-health, digital support systems, big data and more.« European Society of Clinical Pharmacy (ESCP) promotes, supports, implements and advances education, practice and research in clinical pharmacy in order to optimize outcomes for patients and society. Clinical pharmacy as the branch of pharmacy provides direct patient care that optimizes the use of medication and promotes health, wellness, and disease prevention.

ESCP is the international leader in advancing quality and innovation in clinical pharmacy and it annually organizes its symposium or conference.
