The International Society of Oncology Pharmacy Practitioners (ISOPP)’s webinar titled An ISOPP webinar on Global Oncology Pharmacy Response to COVID-19 Pandemic takes place on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at 06:00 PDT.

The webinar is presented by ISOPP’s leaders, Marliese Alexander (Secretary), Alexandre Chan (Past-President), Jennifer Jupp (Research Committee Chair), and Shaun O’Connor (President). Participation is complimentary for ISOPP members and non-members and pre-registration is not required. The webinar will take place via Zoom and a link to the Webinar will be posted on the website closer to the date.

Response, action, and adaptation of the way health services are delivered will impact our ability to provide optimized and continuity of care whilst acting within resource constraints imposed by COVID-19. Care for patients with cancer is particularly important given increased infection rates and worse outcomes from COVID-19 in this patient population, as well as potential adverse outcomes if treatment pathways need to be compromised. 

Being the leading global organization in oncology pharmacy practice, the International Society of Oncology Pharmacy Practitioners (ISOPP), with input from national and regional oncology pharmacy practice groups (42 practice leaders from 28 countries/regions of all continents), provide a global perspective (including both developed and developing nations) on how COVID-19 has impacted access to and delivery of cancer therapies. Specifically, we highlight challenges related to safe handling of hazardous drugs and maintaining high quality medication safety standards that have impacted various stakeholders, and detail a pathway forward through collaborative research efforts.
