Chairman – DUPHAT 2022
Dear Industry Colleagues,
The profession of Pharmacy has faced its greatest challenges in recent history with a pandemic that was most overwhelming. The remarkable element in this scenario is that Pharmacy kept pace with the times and evolved dramatically battling the virus at various levels. As frontline healthcare professionals, Pharmacists all around the world, continue to provide direct patient care, adopting innovative strategies to minimize the adverse impact of Covid-19. The scientists and the pharma industry have phenomenally worked day and night to provide solutions by discovering, repurposing and inventing agents that are proving highly efficacious as treatment options as well as preventative vaccines. The improved collaboration with other healthcare professionals and the wider role in primary care has helped highlight the pharmacists as one of the most trusted professionals worldwide alongside other healthcare professionals.
Continuing professional development is a vital determinant of a progressive approach to specializing and upgrading the profession. DUPHAT conferences have over the years proved significant in this effort. The world has changed and as they state a new normal has arrived. In this context, DUPHAT has re-engineered itself to ensure that the essence of DUPHAT conferences is retained and new paradigm is implemented with greater innovation. With the travel restrictions, DUPHAT 2021 conference was a hybrid event with both face-to-face as well as online presentations adding greater value and experience for all those participating physically as well as remotely.
From its nascent beginnings in 1995, DUPHAT has become an internationally recognized pharmaceutical conference. Professionals, academicians and experts have contributed significantly to DUPHAT’s stature and presence in the global scenario. International organizations ASHP, EUFEPS, SHPA, ISPE, ESOP, IATDMCT, ACPE among others have been patronizing the conference all these years to ensure greater collaboration and cooperation. The constant support of Dubai Health Authority has helped DUPHAT emerge as the premier conference in the region.
