BOPA National Collaborative Healthcare Research Project Proposal

The British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) Research Subcommittee is inviting proposals for projects in oncology and haematology that would benefit from a UK-wide support within their specialist field.

We aim to provide cancer pharmacy professionals with an opportunity to devise, lead, undertake and publish meaningful multicentre collaborative research. This approach means that rather than spend time completing small retrospective single-centre analyses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the wider pharmacy team can instead invest their time in larger potentially practice-changing pieces of work
