Dissemination within each country is critical to the overall success of the Academy Seminars and more importantly, to the success in implementing the European Statements on Hospital Pharmacy. The budget allocated to the Academy Seminars is substantial and it is important that EAHP be able to assess the learning outcomes via dissemination. The EAHP office will be in contact with the seminar delegates to request dissemination activities.
