Entry deadlines announced for 2009 FDBE/GHP/UKCPA Information Technology Award

First DataBank Europe : 11 June, 2008  (Company News)
The Guild of Healthcare Pharmacists (GHP) and the UK Clinical Pharmacy Association (UKCPA) has announced the deadline for entries for the 2009 FDBE/GHP/UKCPA Information Technology Award as being Wednesday 31 December 2008.
The award, which will be presented in the spring of 2009, will be supported once again by First DataBank Europe (FDBE).

The aim of the annual award, which is in its seventh year, is to encourage, support and promote information technology initiatives and best practice in the use of IT in hospital pharmacy. In particular, initiatives are sought where IT has made a positive difference to the provision of pharmaceutical services or resulted in direct benefit to the patients or staff. The award, sponsored by FDBE and aimed at pharmacy departments and individuals, is for the sum of 2500.

Projects may be related to patient care, clinical services, medicines management, decision support, electronic prescribing, or any other IT application that improves pharmaceutical services. This year’s award has been won by the Pharmacy Department at the Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust. The project team was commended for successfully developing a Medicines Management e learning package, accessible and relevant to all staff involved in the medicines management process across all knowledge levels and staff groups.

Last year’s winner was the University College London Hospitals NHS Trust which created a solution which used IT to manage and electronically store information about clinical trials taking place within the trust. In 2006 the Queen’s Medical Centre Pharmacy Department who won the award for its development of a networked IT system to improve the on-call pharmacy service.

Neil Kirby, member of the IT Interest Group said, “We are delighted that FDBE has chosen to continue to support this award. The entries we have received over the last six years have been of a very high standard and have demonstrated the positive impact that IT can have upon the way pharmacists work and the way in which services are delivered. We hope that this award will continue to highlight some of the most successful projects and inspire others in the use of information technology.”
