The manufacture and distribution of falsified medicines is a growing public health risk with an untold cost to lives. The implementation on February 9th 2019 of the safety features of the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) will be a major advance and will greatly help to protect patients from falsified medicines.


The roundtable entitled “Improving patient safety with the FMD in the hospital pharmacy, status of implementation” aims to create a positive and practical atmosphere and to help debate solutions that will be supportive of the implementation of the verification of prescription packs in the hospital pharmacy setting.


The conference will be kindly hosted by MEP José Inácio Faria (EPP, Portugal) and will take place on Tuesday February 19, 2019 from 14:00 to 16:00, in the European Parliament, room ASP 5E-3.


Given the importance of the FMD and its contribution towards patient safety, we sincerely hope to see you there.

We look forward to welcoming you on 19th February.
