The historically first virtual Congress of Hospital Pharmacists took place in the first week in November 2020 (November 6-7, 2020). Although the form of the congress changed, we were pleasantly surprised by the participation – the congress was watched by almost 500 participants from the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It was broadcast not only from Prague, but also from Brno and other parts of the republic.
It is worth mentioning the introductory and also very current lecture entitled Current epidemiological situation with COVID-19. And despite the fact that the main program of the congress together with this lecture fell on a Saturday, 350 participants were joined at one time.
The congress was supported by a total of 8 partners, 4 exhibitors and 3 supporting companies. We would like to thank them for their support.
The participants praised not only the professional program, which also included two company symposia and a workshop, but also an informal friendly atmosphere. Since the individual visitors often know each other and function as a community, they added photos to social networks watching the congress at home with their pets or even baking a cake during the program or break. The congress, despite its virtual form, was more personal, interesting and interactive.
We would like to thank project manager Marcela Rajtorová and her team for a perfect job.
