CPG Foundation Course - Online over 2 Saturdays, 5 & 12 June 2021

The COSA Cancer Pharmacists Group (CPG) is hosting their 13th Foundation Clinical Practice Course online over two consecutive Saturdays, 5 and 12 June 2021. 

The course is designed to assist pharmacists new to cancer management to develop clinical skills in cancer pharmacy practice. We combine 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 have been invited to lead the course, not only for their vast knowledge and experience, but also their skills and ability at teaching and running workshops.

CPG Advanced Course - TBC

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 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. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed of any changes. General information and updates will be placed on the conference website.

The COSA CPG recognises there are limited continuing educational opportunities for pharmacists who have a solid foundation in cancer. To help experienced cancer pharmacists further develop their knowledge and skills, the CPG are pleased to offer our Advanced Practice weekend seminar. This seminar is designed for those pharmacists who have broad experience in cancer services with a good base knowledge of cancer therapeutics.

We look forward to seeing you at the 10th Advanced Clinical Practice Course!
