The official journal of the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP), the European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (EJHP), is recognised by our colleagues as a valuable source of information and inspiration. With the two issues ‘practice’ and ‘science’, EJHP offered in the past and still offers today, not only news, political information and national profiles, but also results from practice and background science.

With the launch of a combined issue of the journal published by the BMJ Publishing Group (BMJPG), EJHP is moving to the next milestone in its history. The new design is not only a question of aesthetics but more a start for a new vision of communication within our association as well as with all hospital pharmacists in Europe and worldwide. While continuing to giving updated information on professional and political developments, EJHP will become more and more an educational tool answering the emerging questions of our profession. Other educational and scientific activities of the EAHP will be linked to the journal and its web version, giving our individual members the opportunities for continuing education and in particular supporting and updating our colleagues in small and rural hospitals who are not always able to attend our congresses or seminars. This is paramount to the mission of the EAHP, assisting and guiding the role of pharmacists today and in the future.

As President of the EAHP, I feel rewarded in my role in the organisation as we continue to increase the recognition of our association as a provider of continuing professional education. We will continue in our efforts to foster our profession and to be the voice of all European hospital pharmacists. EJHP will be an important part of this future.
