Our pharmacists ensure safety in compounding, preparing, and dispensing chemotherapy. They are responsible for minimizing drug waste, managing drug shortages, and decreasing exposure to hazardous drugs. With education and treatment planning, many adverse effects of chemotherapy can be managed, helping to increase treatment tolerance, decreasing extra visit costs, and improving quality of life for our patients. Studies have shown that getting a pharmacist involved in patient education improves the use and outcomes in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy, both decreasing the incidence and severity of adverse effects.
As cancer therapies become more targeted and personalized, Array’s skilled pharmacists are an important resource in educating and managing adverse effects of treatment. Our pharmacists work with oncology teams to deliver a wide variety of services to patients, including education, monitoring adverse effects and providing supportive care. Supportive care services may include those for nausea and vomiting, pain management, constipation and diarrhea, anemia and anticoagulation.
