Abstract

KEY MESSAGES: 1.1 The continued development of pharmacy services and the pharmaceutical sciences relies on a well educated, competent, sufficient and well distributed pharmaceutical workforce. 1.2 There is no workforce without education. It is fundamental for the international community to agree on how pharmaceutical workforce competency is developed and assured through initial and subsequent professional education. 1.3 The concept of a continuously competent workforce is of fundamental interest for professional leadership bodies and stakeholders. 1.4 As FIP member organisations drive the development of the profession at the national level, they should always consider encompassing an education component [initial education and Continuing Professional Development (CPD)/Continuing Education (CE)] into their strategies. 1.5 FIP brought together global health and pharmacy leaders from across the world to set the future milestones for pharmaceutical education in the context of workforce development during an exceptional event, which took place in Nanjing, China, on 7 and 8 November 2016: the Global Conference on Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Education — "Creating a global vision for a global workforce". 1.6 The conference set the future milestones for education and workforce development of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists, and created a global vision for transformative pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences education. 2. PRINCIPAL OUTCOMES: Following extensive consultation, three milestone documents were presented and adopted at the global conference. Participants at the conference were able to influence and contribute to them. These are: 2.1 A Global Vision for Education and Workforce that provides a description of the future directions of our profession and how education can support the evolution of science and practice. 2.2 A set of 13 Pharmaceutical Workforce Development Goals (PWDGs) which aim to facilitate the implementation of the global vision through a series of measurable, feasible and tangible goals. 2.3 A set of 67 statements on Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Education ("the Nanjing Statements") that describe an envisioned future for education, to enable the enhancement of professional education standards worldwide.
