CMOP is a collaborative research project being undertaken in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde to explore the capability of existing NHS data systems to determine the clinical effectiveness of cancer medicines in the real life setting. Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team you will be leading on specific projects within CMOP to utilise existing NHS data systems and to develop new processes to determine clinical outcomes for cancer medicines. You will be based within the ECC and will also provide a clinical pharmacy service as a non-medical prescriber to an oncology clinic service. This post requires excellent clinical knowledge, communication and negotiation skills with experience of influencing senior members of the multidisciplinary team in delivering patient care. Experience of working within acute care and in particular within cancer is highly desirable. You are required to have a Masters degree in Pharmacy or equivalent and will be a member of the General Pharmaceutical Council with significant post registration experience. A Postgraduate diploma or equivalent qualification / experience plus an independent prescriber qualification is also required. Cancer Medicines Outcomes Programme (CMOP) Vision: To create a national clinical effectiveness oncology resource to measure the clinical and patient reported outcomes of cancer medicines use in the real world and provide rapid feedback of findings to inform clinical decision making. Project overview: Building on the success of CMOP Phase 1 within the West of Scotland Cancer Network, CMOP Phase 2 aims to further develop a comprehensive, robust program of evidence generation to inform clinical practice in cancer care. A key opportunity within oncology services is to exploit the utilisation of the electronic Systemic Anti-Cancer Treatment (SACT) prescribing data, providing a robust means of electronically tracking the prescribing of cancer medicines at a patient specific level. CMOP aims to maximise the use of existing and new evolving data systems to investigate the impact of different patient attributes, e.g. deprivation category, co-morbidity and stage of disease on clinical outcomes from cancer medicines across Scotland. Funding has now been secured for CMOP Phase 2 which will be focused on the following five areas: * Testing the national scalability of CMOP phase 1 approach and model * Driving quality improvement in patients' care and dataset capability * Using real world evidence to inform health technology assessment and reimbursement systems * Providing strategic leadership and oversight in the development of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) for use in clinical practice in relation to cancer medicines * Positioning Scotland as a centre of excellence in the area of cancer medicines surveillance through establishing a national, and international network to support global cancer medicine outcomes.
