CPG Foundation Course, 5-7 May 2017
The COSA Cancer Pharmacists Group (CPG) of the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) hosted their 10th Foundation Clinical Practice Course and their first 3-day program from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th May 2017, at the Rydges Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
This course was designed to assist pharmacists new to cancer management in developing clinical skills in cancer pharmacy practice. We combined informative lectures, interactive workshops and a panel discussion, to assist in the development of skills and abilities in the many processes involved in providing cancer treatment to our patients, with a focus on the management of key tumours.
The course was 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 had been invited to lead the course, not only for their vast knowledge and experience in the area of cancer pharmacy practice, but also their skills and ability at teaching and running workshops.
We hope you enjoyed the 10th Foundation Clinical Practice Course!
