Welcome

The Canadian Association of Pharmacy in Oncology (CAPhO) is the national forum for oncology pharmacists and other health care professionals interested in oncology pharmacy.

Through the annual CAPhO Conference and other initiatives, we promote the practice of oncology pharmacy in Canada. We conduct educational events, maintain professional practice standards, facilitate communication between oncology pharmacists and other interested health professionals and advocate for oncology pharmacy as an area of specialty practice.
