In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, healthcare organizations around the world have implemented and utilised changes in cancer care including a wide variety of technologies. The purpose of this collection of papers is to showcase and share learning from those who have had experience of these changes including implementing the use of IT solutions and/or IT science to assist and improve clinical outcomes for patients.

The overarching theme for the research topic is impact of COVID-19 pandemic on cancer care.

Report back from the Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada in June 2022.

In 2019, an ISOPP survey identified several barriers to biosimilar implementation faced by oncology pharmacists internationally. The African region was identified as facing several challenges to implementation that were different from those experienced in higher income settings.  An African survey was designed in 2021 to explore these challenges further, with a view to creating educational materials and resources to meet the specific needs of oncology professionals in Africa.  The main results are shared here.

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.
