More information

The course is designed to assist pharmacists new to cancer care to develop clinical skills in cancer pharmacy practice.  It aims to develop foundational skills and abilities in the processes involved in providing cancer treatment to our patients, with focus on the management of key tumour groups

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 COSA CPG Foundation Clinical Practice Course for Cancer Pharmacists.
