HOPA’s Vision and Mission remain clear and strong and have not wavered since our inception. In January 2015, the HOPA Board of Directors, key stakeholders and staff met to conduct a comprehensive review of the HOPA Strategic Plan, which reflects four redevised core areas: Professional Development, Professional Resources and Tools, Research, and Advocacy. These focused goal areas identify where the association will direct its energy and resources in the next five years. A set of objectives for each area provides measurable direction in achieving these goals.

 

OUR VISION: All individuals affected by cancer have a hematology/oncology pharmacist as an integral member of their care team.

OUR MISSION: Support pharmacy practitioners and promote and advance hematology/oncology pharmacy to optimize the care of individuals affected by cancer.
