CPG Foundation Course 2020, 21 -
COSA CPG Foundation Course
17 - 19 April 2020
Due to the evolving global medical crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and its current escalation in Australia, the COSA CPG Committee have decided to postpone the 2020 COSA CPG Foundation Clinical Practice for Cancer Pharmacists that was due to take place in Brisbane on the 17 – 19 April 2020. The Foundation Course will be postponed until early 2021. You will be notified once the new dates have been confirmed. The Committee have also made the difficult decision to place the 2020 COSA CPG Advanced Clinical Practice Course that was due to take place in Melbourne on the 12 – 13 September 2020 on-hold.
This decision to postpone was not taken lightly and followed close monitoring of the COVID-19 outbreak. The health and safety of our delegates, speakers and sponsors is our highest priority. Most attendees have a duty to the clinical environment and directives from their workplaces limiting attendance at events during the pandemic. This was a major consideration in our decision-making process.
The course is designed to assist pharmacists new to cancer management to develop clinical skills in cancer pharmacy practice and combined informative lectures, interactive workshops and panel discussions to assist in the development of skills and abilities in the many processes involved in providing cancer treatment to our patients, with focus on the management of key tumours.
This course is delivered ‘by cancer pharmacists, for cancer pharmacists’ with speakers who are experienced cancer pharmacists and members of the CPG. These pharmacists work in a variety of settings across Australia at a multidisciplinary level, and were invited to lead the course, not only for their vast knowledge and experience, but also their skills and ability at teaching and running workshops.
We look forward to welcoming you to the next COSA CPG Foundation Clinical Practice for Cancer Pharmacists Meeting in Brisbane.
