Chemotherapy administration has a well known potential for errors. This pre–post study found that implementation of an electronic health record–facilitated, pharmacist-led, standardized ordering and monitoring program for oral chemotherapy led to better identification of prescribing errors. This research adds to the evidence for the role of pharmacists in making cancer care safer.
