Welcome Letter

Dear colleagues,

It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I invite you, on behalf of the SASOPh organising committee, to attend the very first Excellence Course for Oncology Pharmacy in South Africa! This will take place at facilities in Sandton from Wednesday the 10th of May to Sunday the 14th of May 2023.

This course is made possible through ESOP (European Society for Oncology Pharmacy) and up to now only offered in Europe. Thus far only a handful of our Oncology Pharmacists had the pleasure of attending some of these classes abroad.

Now, for the first time, SASOPh brings this training opportunity to Africa. Thanks to the guiding hands of our overseas colleagues at ESOP, delegates from all over the globe will have the opportunity to benefit from this program on South African soil.

This course will be 39 hours of intense learning and some practical exercises to bring our pharmaceutical knowledge up to speed with our day-to-day work environment.

There has been an educational gap for many pharmacists in South Africa with no formally recognized training in oncology.

We are proud to host this event to ensure the continuous development of pharmacist for the improvement of patient care.

We look forward to welcoming you to this first ever EXCOP SA.

Yours truly,
Johan Labuschagne
