Providing educational resources to improve knowledge and confidence in oncology biosimilars amongst hospital pharmacists and oncologists in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Japan, and Canada.
Developed by PCM Scientific, our CME division, the ASK Biosimilars programme aims to educate hospital pharmacists and oncologists in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Japan, and Canada in their knowledge and clinical use of oncology biosimilars and the treatment of solid tumours.
The programme began with three live webinars hosted by an international expert faculty. All live sessions were recorded and available on-demand via the ASK Biosimilars website. Additional educational resources such as a digital educational handbook, multiple learning chapters, an abstract resource library, and NRA summary guidelines were also produced and hosted via the ASK platform. To meet the knowledge gaps internationally, all the digital resources were translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese.
Using our brands Hospital Healthcare Europe and Hospital Pharmacy Europe, the resources were promoted to our community of hospital pharmacists and oncologists in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Japan, and Canada. Promotion was also done via oncology pharmacy associations such as the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) and Canadian Association of Pharmacy in Oncology (CAPhO).
This independent educational activity is supported by funding from Pfizer Inc. PCM Scientific is the medical education company acting as scientific secretariat and organiser for this programme. The activity is run independently of the financial supporter and all content is created by the faculty. No funder has had input into the content of the activity.
