Topics in Cancer Pharmacy in North Carolina: Updates for Oral Chemotherapy for 2022
Bianka Patel, PharmD, BCOP, CPP
Oral chemotherapy is becoming increasingly common in treatment of various malignancies. Although oral oncolytics are extremely beneficial for patients, they also present unique challenges for patients and providers alike. Implementing oral chemotherapy often requires a multidisciplinary approach. This lecture will discuss several considerations for oral chemotherapy such as prescribing, patient education, adherence, medication access, cost and insurance authorization, monitoring, supportive care, and more. We will walk through a patient case to highlight practical suggestions for successful implementation of oral chemotherapy for patients.
