Drug Interactions Workshop

The Drug Interactions Workshop will take place on Thursday, April 2, 2020 from 12:00 to 16:30 in conjunction with the CAPhO Conference 2020

More details about the Workshop to follow. For returning DI Participants, please note that select workshop cases from 2018 and 2019 may be reused at the 2020 workshop.

Please note that lunch will not be provided at the Drug Interactions Workshop; however, light refreshments and snacks will be served in the afternoon.


In small groups, you will work through 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, prioritization of drug interactions, 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.
