ISOPP Standards Task Force Updates

By Shaun O’Connor, Chair 

The Standards Task Force has successfully released the revised version of the ISOPP Standards for the Safe Handling of Cytotoxics as a JOPP online supplement. This is the culmination of hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of work by the Task Force and stands the society in good stead moving forwards. 

I delivered a webinar on behalf of the co-chairs and the Task Force last month on the new Standards, which is available in the Virtual Library for members. Tasks that remain to be completed are a review of the Standards Audit Tool and a potential erratum publication if any issues are identified with the standards. 

Given the completion of the Task Force's main goal, the Task Force has now been dissolved, and I wish to thank the members and those who have contributed to the standards in any way for their contribution. I have recommended that ISOPP moves to begin another review of the standards in 2 years’ time.
