April 2020

The situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to change and evolve; what will not change is our Society’s commitment to do everything we can to support our members.


ISOPP Members, the seventieth issue of the Virtual Journal Club (VJC) is available on the International Society of Oncology Pharmacy Practitioners (ISOPP) website. To access it, visit the https://www.isopp.org/isopp-education-resources/virtual-journal-club-surveys 


ISOPP’s Publication on Biosimilars is published as a supplement in the Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice (JOPP).

ISOPP believes that oncology pharmacists have a crucial role to play in the implementation and optimal use of biosimilar medicines in clinical practice. To support oncology pharmacists in fulfilling this role, in 2018 the Secretariat of ISOPP formed a Biosimilars Task Force to review the available evidence, and to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by the introduction of biosimilars into the oncology and supportive care setting and how these could be addressed.


ISOPP’s virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Wednesday, April 8, 2020. We had a great turn out to both the AGM and the Let’s Talk COVID-19 session! Special thanks to the ISOPP Leadership, Presenters and members for delivering an informative meeting.


ISOPP Members, the ISOPP quarterly Newsletter was distributed to your inbox today. Read about updates and other important news from ISOPP and members around the world!


Every one of us is experiencing the unexpected and rapidly evolving consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is at a time like this that our community should strengthen and support one another, and learn from one another’s changes in our daily lives. This year, at ISOPP’s Virtual 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM), we are inviting everyone to stay connected by sharing their experiences during this unprecedented time. Join us and let’s talk!
