Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the European Society of Oncology Pharmacy (ESOP) and the Organising Committee, we are delighted to invite you to take part in the 4th European Conference of Oncology Pharmacy (ECOP4), which will take place on 25-27 October 2018 in Nantes, France.

The objective of this unique conference is to promote the highest standards of pharmaceutical care in the management and support of patients with tumours. The programme aims to equip oncology pharmacy practitioners with knowledge about recent developments, advance the effectiveness of healthcare delivery and increase the quality of patient care.

State-of-the-art advances in research, patient management and practice will be showcased in keynote lectures, scientific symposia and poster sessions in two well-defined tracks: clinical and practical.

ECOP4 will address the challenges and opportunities in oncology pharmacy and bring together colleagues and partners to exchange, debate and network. As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, close cooperation between oncology physicians and oncology pharmacists is essential for optimal patient care.

The last three ECOP meetings have reiterated the importance and value of such exchanges. We will strive not only to meet the success of the former three conferences but also to exceed it especially in the quality of the scientific education.

ECOP meetings provide a distinct setting for such a multi-professional and multidisciplinary approach in oncology thus ensuring efficient and effective use of economic resources but also significant improvements to patient safety.

Last but not least, we are pleased this conference will be held in Nantes – a culturally lively and innovative city, also home to the iconic mechanical Great Elephant, a testament to Nantes as a driver of invention and scientific progress and, therefore, a perfect host for ECOP4.

We invite you to join us in the incredibly diverse city of Nantes for a stimulating and enjoyable ECOP4 to learn, share and network.

Kind regards,

Mirjam Crul (Scientific Chair)
Mikael Daouphars (Conference Chair)
Klaus Meier (President of ESOP)
