BOPA 2018 | How to achieve an outstanding clinical pharmacy service

Calum Polwart • 13 Oct 2018

One of the topics discussed at the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) Annual Symposium 2018, held in Birmingham, UK, was the question of what should a good, or even outstanding, clinical pharmacy service look like and how can this be achieved. Calum Polwart, MRPharmS, SPres, IPres, MSc, from the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, Darlington, UK, shares insights from this open discussion which saw the audience share their opinions and experiences. What resources and structures are needed in place to make these higher standards of practice achievable were addressed and, promisingly, by the end of this session 17 individuals had volunteered to take part in a specialist workforce in collaboration with BOPA. Together this group will look to develop the standard of oncology pharmacy services.
