Geof Saunders speaks to ecancer at the 2019 Biosimilars Educational Advanced Masterclass for Pharmacists (P-BEAM) in Zurich about introducing a biosimilar of trastuzumab into clinical practice.

He speaks about the processes behind the implementation of this biosimilar, which included a variety of staff across different disciplines.

Saunders also reflects on the feedback from this, especially from patients and how these processes could be improved for the future.
