Ad 1. Safety for Citizens – The petition starts now

Now we want to start our petition “For sustainable medication supply and social responsibility”. Many people took part personally in the preparations. Translations are available in many languages around the world which help to understand the campaign.


Some have particularly emphasized their support with a personal picture and also with a short personal statement that this campaign for a better future deserves the support of everyone. Please inform everyone you know (your family, friends or at work) about the opportunity to make a personal contribution. We will publish the results on the website ( at regular intervals and address this information to everyone who has political and social influence.
If you want to become active now, send your picture and/or a statement to

Ad 2. My day with Oncology Pharmacy

At the last two ECOP congresses we called for people to document the requirements that we deal with on a daily basis in the interest of better patient care.

We give all members the opportunity to take part for a second time.

1. We will publish the results summarized in the EJOP and
2. In addition, each country has the opportunity to create its own poster for the ECOP 6 2024 in Lisbon, based on the information provided. This gives ECOP participants the opportunity to experience the differences and similarities.
The delegates or liaisons of the individual countries will take responsibility for the respective poster creation. The questionnaire will therefore only be available for answers for 4 weeks. Please respond quickly to be included.

Ad 3. Working Groups

A new uniform logo for all working groups
For a convincing representation of our content and goals and active members

The spirit of collaboration drives us. We have members who have been doing daily work for decades and others who have just started out in this area of work.

The exchange on practical and technical questions is not only of great importance for us and our knowledge gains, but the result should be an improvement for cancer patients.

The exchange takes place on the basis of trust and mutual recognition. For this reason, at the beginning of last year we asked members about their interests and founded working groups.
After the name Special Interest Group led to misunderstandings, because we do not convene the working groups to address individual, separate and often industry-imitated questions, as other societies do, but we are interested in a long-term and sustainable improvement in our level of knowledge.
For this reason, we will make this clear with a new logo for these working groups and publish the names of the working group members and the respective work results on the homepage, which can be used in everyday life.
This may also be used by people who have not yet become members of ESOP Global, but we are sure that the possibility of intensive exchange, which is only carried out by members in the WG´s, will encourage anyone who is really interested to do so in the future.
We warmly invite you to promote better care for cancer patients, which is closely related to our level of knowledge and experience, and to work in the working groups as a member of the ESOP Global.

The experiences of the last meetings, 2012 in Budapest, Hungary, 2014 in Krakow, Poland, 2016 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, 2018 in Nantes, France and 2022 in Hamburg, Germany have reassured us of the importance of personal exchange not only on a national but on an international level as well.
