The article “Impact of coronavirus of 2019 on the delivery of pharmacy services to patients with cancer: An international survey of oncology pharmacy practitioners” is published in Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice (JOPP).

The coronavirus of 2019 pandemic has necessitated vast and rapid changes in the way oncology pharmacy services are delivered around the world. The survey results demonstrate the adaptability of the oncology pharmacy profession and highlight the importance of formal evaluation of the varied practice models to determine the evidence-based practices that enhance pharmacy services.

An international survey, involving respondents from over 40 countries of oncology pharmacists and technicians was conducted via the International Society of Oncology Pharmacy Practitioners (ISOPP) and collaborating global pharmacy organizations.
