BOPA 2018 | The UKONS SACT competency passport: an update

Last year, the UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) launched a passport for the Safe Handling and Administration of Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapies (SACT) to ensure oncology nurses receive consistent, standardized training in administering SACT. Here, Catherine Oakley, PhD, of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, highlights the great progress made, and the future aim of including registration onto a national database to help organisations assess competency. Dr Oakley was speaking at the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) Annual Symposium 2018, held in Birmingham, UK.
