BCOP Test - Palliative Care for Patients with Cancer - Symptom Management for Pain and Dyspnea
Prior to completing this test, we recommend viewing the educational activity Palliative Care for Patients with Cancer - Symptom Management for Pain and Dyspnea (either the live webinar or recorded webcast).
The BCOP test may be taken only once. Within the test, you will be able to go back and revisit questions you have already answered. Your test progress will be saved after each question, allowing you to leave the test incomplete and then resume it from where you left off, if needed. You will be required you to click a submit button before your test will be graded.
If you pass the test with a score of 75% or higher, you will be asked to enter your BPS ID and Credential Number. Please be sure to have this information available. If you do not know your BPS ID number, please contact the Board of Pharmacy Specialties.
As part of the review process, qualified BCOP reviewers evaluate all BCOP tests for individual question performance and participant feedback on how well the questions were worded and answerable from the materials provided. If you have any questions or concerns about the BCOP tests, please email email@example.com.

NCCN Continuing Education Disclosure Policy
It is the policy of NCCN that every 12 months, all faculty, moderators, activity planners and all internal planning staff participating in NCCN continuing education activities are expected to disclose any financial relationships with a commercial interest. In addition, all faculty presentations have been reviewed to ensure education is fair and balanced and that clinical content presented supports safe, effective patient care. Individuals who do not disclose relevant financial relationships will be disqualified from involvement in the CE activity as a content developer, planner, or presenter.
NCCN continuing education considers financial relationships to create a conflict of interest when an individual has both a financial relationship with a commercial interest and the opportunity to affect continuing education content about the products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
NCCN continuing education considers relevant financial relationships as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest. NCCN does not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship.
All faculty for this continuing education activity are competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience, training, and/or preparation for the tasks and methods of delivery.
Faculty presentations may include discussion of off-label use. Faculty will disclose that the use in question is not currently approved by the FDA per the product labeling.

A BCOP statement of credit will be issued only upon completion of a post-activity evaluation form and post-test, with a passing grade of 75% achieved.
Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest: The Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) assesses conflict of interest with its instructors, planners, managers, and other individuals who are in a position to control the content of CE activities. All relevant conflicts of interest that are identified are thoroughly vetted by HOPA for fair balance, scientific objectivity of studies utilized in this activity, and patient care recommendations. HOPA is committed to providing its learners with high-quality CE activities and related materials that promote improvements of quality in healthcare and not a specific proprietary business interest of a commercial interest.
Reported Areas of Conflict: Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association does not view the existence of relationships as an implication of bias or that the value of the material is decreased. The content of the activity was planned to be balanced, objective, and scientifically rigorous. Occasionally, authors may express opinions that represent their own viewpoint. Conclusions drawn by participants should be derived from objective analysis of scientific data. Unlabeled/unapproved uses of drugs. All faculty have indicated that they have not referenced unlabeled/unapproved uses of drugs and devices.
