The COSA Cancer Pharmacists Group (CPG) is committed to promoting and further developing the role of the pharmacist in cancer services and is the only national multidisciplinary forum for pharmacists working in cancer services in Australia.

A major goal of the CPG is to facilitate training, education and research within both pharmacy and cancer services while ensuring that pharmacists have input into key national policy documents and clinical guidelines.

CPG membership comprises pharmacists practising in a variety of settings including medical oncology, haematology, palliative care and chemotherapy preparation services in both public and private settings. Only registered pharmacists who are members of COSA are eligible for membership of the CPG.
