The conference covered topics such as Clinical Pharmacy, Social and Administrative Pharmacy, Pharmacy Education, Pharmacoeconomics, Pharmacoepidemiology, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and other topics relating to pharmacy.

To date, pharmacists have developed their roles in clinical pharmacy. The pharmacy curricula have been improved to cover the demand from stakeholders, along with the increase of clinical pharmacist needed in the hospitals.

Meanwhile, the clinical pharmacy services in community pharmacy settings have also started to rise, as more “patient-oriented” services paradigm and “pharmaceutical care” concept have been accepted in Asian countries.

The original idea of ACCP came from Asian pharmacists who were looking for a practical conference in which they could exchange and share ideas on the concept of clinical pharmacy and in 1996, representatives from China, Korea, Japan, and USA met in Seoul, Korea to plan for the first conference.
