Treatment for All

By John Wiernikowski, Advocacy Task Force Chair

Answer the question:  "What my Oncology Pharmacist does for me/our Institution" by recording a “vignettes” for a twitter post or as a video. 

The length can vary from "tweet" size (144-288 characters) to narratives of 250-500 words and should be from: patients and families, managers, administrators, oncologists, nurses, and other allied health professionals.

Your testimonial will be used as part of the Union for International Cancer Control’s (UICC) Treatment for All campaign to build oncology pharmacy capacity in low and middle income countries, with an initial focus on Africa.

The vignettes should ideally:

  • Span the breadth of services Pharmacists provide, including: clinical, patient safety, cost-effective inventory management, reduction in waste etc.
  • Include the name and status of the provider and where they are located (e.g. Ted Smith, Cancer Patient, BC Cancer Agency, Vancouver, CANADA Margaret Hobbs, Senior Administrator, Cancer Program, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, CANADA).

Please submit your vignettes to Advocacy Task Force Chair, John Wiernikowski, via email at
