Transformation programmes 

The FIP transformation programmes support the profession with needs-based national strategies and co-created solutions, tools, mechanisms, and resources for implementation. The Transformation programmes promote both the global transformation of pharmacy practice, education and workforce through partnerships, provision, tools and case studies, training and support, and the quality improvement of services delivered to improve health outcomes and the quality of life of individuals.

The three transformation programmes provide tools and strategic support to FIP member organisations and FIP AIMs to develop and implement pharmacy education, pharmacy services and workforce developments with a sustained positive impact on the needs of their populations and national health needs. The programmes underpin our vision of a world where everyone benefits from access to safe, effective, quality, and affordable medicines.

Resources from workforce transformation programme

  1. TtT: Train the Trainer Indonesia (IAI)
    The TtT programme is a key component of the FIP-IAI Workforce Transformation Programme partnership. The sessions were designed by experts to deliver on key training objectives, including explaining the principles of competency-based training, linking with health services, and using FIP‘s Global Competency and Global Advanced Development Frameworks in addition to other global tools for supporting competency progression of early career pharmacists. The programme introduced the use of portfolios, work-based evaluation and peer feedback, and training was delivered using simulation videos and interactive sessions reflecting real-practice scenarios. 
  2. GbCF handbook: (Case studies from around the globe using the FIP framework) 
    This Handbook is intended to be helpful and informative for those who are using the GbCF and those who are following the evidence and wish to adopt it as a career and professional development tool.
    The revised GbCFv2 edition continues to provide support for members and organisations. However, to make best use of this important tool, then an understanding of ways to access and to implement would be helpful – for both individuals and organisations (such as professional leadership organisations). This Handbook brings together chapters on the revision processes (for transparency and validity) and importantly narratives and case studies on how members and leadership bodies have addressed the “adopt and adapt” approach, in the expectation that others can learn rapidly from these cases.  
  3. GADF Handbook: The Global Advanced Development Framework
    The GADF is designed to be applicable for all career options in our profession- pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists.  For our national member organisations and partners, the GADF is designed to be adopted and adapted for any pharmaceutical sector, practice area or field and pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists and the support workforce to develop their advanced practice and specialisation and assist with their career progression.  FIP is able to support professional leadership bodies directly in this adoption and adaptation process, enabling ownership at national level, through the FIP Workforce Transformation Programme (WTP). 

Resources from FIP Practice Transformation Programme on Non-Communicable Diseases (PTP on NCDs)

The FIP practice transformation programme (PTP) on NCDs is a flagship project that aims to deliver FIP’s commitment to the WHO’s Astana Declaration and to the primary healthcare agenda, with a focus on non-communicable diseases. 

The FIP practice transformation programme (PTP) on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) aims to provide strategic support and tools to FIP member organisations to develop and implement pharmacy services that can have a sustained positive impact in the prevention, screening, management, and treatment optimisation of NCDs for improved patient outcomes and health systems efficiency and sustainability.

While the project will have a particular focus on low-and-middle-income countries, it will encourage implementation by countries of all income levels, since the goals of optimising NCDs management and reducing the burden of these diseases are a global imperative.

Resources from Education Transformation Programme

The FIP Education Transformation Programme integrates global and regional education advancements through the FIP-UNITWIN as an enabler for implantation of needs-based priority FIP Development Goals. By leveraging university networks and inter-university cooperation, it drives research, training, and curriculum enhancement in pharmacy education. Embracing diversity, the triphasic approach encompasses global, regional via FIP-UNITWIN centres, and national levels, tailoring education transformation to unique contexts. This unifies education, practice, and global goals, fostering a dynamic evolution of the pharmaceutical profession.
