The British Oncology Pharmacy Association work in consultation with professionals, both inside and outside the pharmacy profession, to produce publications and position statements on certain topics. In addition the new BOPA Bulletin is now sent out with The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacy or direct to members.
Publications may reflect work of one or more individuals on an area relating to cancer pharmacy, access to which is considered by the BOPA committee, to be of benefit to the membership.
Position statements are sometimes considered useful in the clarification of certain contentious pharmaceutical issues relating to cancer. These statements are often provided by the committee (and are endorsed by the Network Pharmacists Forum in some instances) in response to concerns from the membership. They are intended to provide guidance for members and also encourage a common response. The position statements on this web-site are not legally binding and represent a consensus view. This area of the web-site also shows collated responses to comments on consultation documents
