More than 1500 pharmacists and health specialists gathered in Cluj-Napoca for the most important event of the year dedicated to the pharmaceutical community in Romania – the National Pharmacy Congress 2023, 19th Edition, organized by the Romanian Society of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Iuliu Hațieganu” in Cluj-Napoca, reports ziarulfaclia.ro.
The opening ceremony of the congress together with the two plenary lectures by the Rector of UMF, Anca Dana Buzoianu, and the special guest of this edition, Andreas Bender, Professor of Molecular Informatics at the University of Cambridge, took place in the elegant hall of the Romanian National Opera. The theme of this year’s Congress is “Pharmacy today: from tradition to interdisciplinarity and artificial intelligence”.
In the first part of the official opening event, Prof. Marius Bojiță, President of the Cluj Branch of AOSR, spoke on behalf of the Academy of Romanian Scientists, according to whom “The theme of the congress was set by the Romanian Society of Pharmaceutical Sciences almost a year ago. With IT gaining ground in various fields, the Pharmaceutical Sciences Society could not fail to be receptive. It is therefore very important that pharmacies increasingly start to incorporate artificial intelligence into their daily work. However, no matter how much artificial intelligence penetrates the pharmaceutical field, the pharmacist remains the one who must communicate with the patient and it is he who must understand his suffering“.
