The impacts of a pharmacist-managed outpatient clinic and chemotherapy-directed electronic order sets for monitoring oral chemotherapy.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care

In this pilot study, nearly half of patients enrolled in a pharmacist-run oral chemotherapy monitoring clinic experienced a medication-related problem. This finding is consistent with prior studies that demonstrated pharmacist oversight improves safety of oral chemotherapy.
