Official European Society of Oncology Pharmacy Blog
Close co-operation between oncology physicians and oncology pharmacists is essential for optimal patient care. ECOP 2012 offers a tremendous opportunity for exchange and debate between its 2,500 members, colleagues and partners worldwide.
The primary focus of this unique European Conference is to promote the highest standards of pharmaceutical care in the management and support of patients with tumours. The latest advances in research, patient management and practice are being showcased in keynote lectures, scientific symposia and poster sessions in two distinct tracks, clinical and practical.
We know that a multi-professional, multidisciplinary approach in oncology will not only ensure economic use of resources but also significantly improve patient safety. For this reason we are delighted that Professor Martine Piccart, President of the European Society for Medical Oncology will participate in the Opening Event.
Lastly, but by no means least, our host city will match the exciting promise of the Conference itself. Speakers, participants, guests and friends should make time to discover the wonderful city that is Budapest with its wealth of historical buildings on both sides of the river Danube.
On behalf of the European Society of Oncology Pharmacy (ESOP), we urge you not to miss this rare opportunity to be a part of a united European platform for oncology physicians and oncology pharmacists – ECOP 2012.
