The Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Sessions are live educational programs
that focus on new developments in oncology pharmacy. On an annual basis,
BCOPs may earn at least 5.0 recertification hours for the live educational
program following successful completion of a Web-based self-assessment
examination. Actual hours available through live programming may vary
from year to year, based on the content of the programming.
The Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Sessions are updated annually and are
presented at the Annual Meetings of the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy
Association (HOPA), and repeated at the Annual Meeting of the American
College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP), and at the Midyear Clinical Meeting
of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). BCOPs who
wish to earn recertification credit for the Oncology Pharmacy Specialty
Sessions must register and attend one of these meetings and attend the
specialty sessions in full at the meeting in order to purchase access
to the Web-based posttest. Upon successful completion of the post test,
BCOPs will earn at least 5.0 hours of recertification credit. Partial
credit is not available. The self-assessment examination must be submitted
by December 31 of the year the sessions were attended.
In 2015, the Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Sessions will be presented first
during the 2015 HOPA Annual Meeting, March 25–28 in Austin, Texas. The
Specialty Sessions will be repeated at the 2015 ACCP Global Conference
on Clinical Pharmacy, October 17–21, in San Francisco, California and at
the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, December 6–10, in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The content of the Specialty Sessions will be the same at each meeting. Visit
the Web sites of the organizations for more information on the Specialty
Sessions as information becomes available. HOPA: www.hoparx.org;
