Immunotherapy Task Force Position Paper published

ISOPP Position Paper on the role of oncology pharmacy practitioners in immunotherapy treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors for malignant conditions

The position paper developed by the Immunotherapy Task Force has been approved by the ISOPP Secretariat and published online ahead of print by the Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice

The position statement describes four key recommendations:

1) participation as an integrated, collaborative member of the multidisciplinary health care team (MHT);

2) provision of education and training for patients, students, residents, fellows and other members of the MHT;

3) involvement in clinical governance to optimize the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors and

4) involvement in research and development in the field of immunotherapy.

This paper will allow ISOPP to have engagement with other stakeholders in the field of immunotherapy, such as pharmaceutical companies.
