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.
These courses are intended for medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists, hematologists, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, radiologic technologists, researchers, pharmacists, trainees, and others who are interested in care of patients with cancer in North Carolina.
- Identify important considerations for prescribing oral chemotherapy
- Explain the steps involved in dispensing/distribution of oral chemotherapy to patients
