2019-10-16 10:39:35 | BioPortfolio


This trial studies how well pharmacist-led transitions of care works in the outpatient oncology infusion center for patients with solid tumor. Having a pharmacist in the outpatient oncology infusion center may help to identify and correct medical related problems and improve overall patient and staff satisfaction. Patients receiving education may benefit from gaining a better understanding of their antineoplastic therapy. Understanding the side effects associated with the therapy may also help patients better be prepared to manage any adverse effects they may experience.

I. To evaluate overall patient and staff satisfaction with the added clinical oncology pharmacy education.
