The Drug Interactions Workshop will be held on Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 12:00 to 17:00 in conjunction with the CAPhO Conference 2018.

In small groups, you will work through four drug interaction cases with the support of expert facilitators. The cases will be typical of clinically relevant drug interactions you will encounter in oncology pharmacy practice. You and your group will make a series of decisions including interpretation of the drug interaction resource information, development of a pharmaceutical care plan including a recommendation, clinical rationale, communication of your plan, and creation of a patient follow up and/or monitoring plan.
