Cancer treatment regimens today are so complex that oncology pharmacists and administrators for oncology pharmacy services must take a leadership role as part of the multidisciplinary cancer care team. ACCC understands your pivotal role in delivery of quality, patient-centered care. We've curated content designed to facilitate the important work you do as a pharmacist.

From Oncology Issues

  • A Pharmacist-Managed Oral Chemotherapy Program
    The shift from infused to oral agents has implications for patients and cancer programs. This 2011 ACCC Innovator Award winning program explains its pharmacist-managed approach.
  •  ACCESS: The First Step Toward Analyzing Precision Medicine Data
    Jonathan Trent, MD, PhD
    Before we can precisely characterize a disease, prescribe targeted medicine, and track therapy progress, we need to find a better way to order tests, store results, and share information. Read how Sylvester Cancer Center in Miami did just that by integrating precision medicine data into its electronic health record (EHR).
  •  The Role of the Oral Oncology Nurse Navigator
    Mary K. Anderson, BSN, RN, OCN; Michael J. Reff, RPH, MBA; Rebecca S. McMahon, MHA, BSN, RN, OCN; and Deborah R. Walters, RN, OCN
    While oncology programs and practices must take into account numerous considerations when ramping up their oral chemotherapy services, this article focuses on one unique and very important role to facilitate this transition: the oral oncology nurse navigator.
  •  Delivering Pharmacogenetic Testing in the Community Setting
    Mark Wagner, PharmD; Jennifer Eichmeyer, MS, CGC; Paul G. Montgomery, MD; Jessica Monitz, PharmD; Jesslie Modlin, PharmD; and Natalie Perry, BA
