Strategies to Prevent Cancer Chemotherapy Errors: Focus on Oral Agents

Program Overview:

Recently, there has been a significant influx of oral chemotherapy agents available to treat cancer. In the past 3 years alone, over 20 new agents have been approved by the FDA. This trend will likely escalate as many patients prefer to convenience of oral therapy, assuming equal efficacy. Oral therapies can offer significant improvements for cancer patients, but also bring unique safety challenges including access and adherence, high cost and reimbursement challenges, potential drug/drug interactions, and safety issues to caregivers. In addition, many health care organizations have focused their efforts intensely on safe practices to prevent errors with parenteral chemotherapy, but may not have the same level of safeguards with oral agents. This program will explore the common causes of oral chemotherapy errors and describe practical initiatives that can prevent events. The speaker will outline components of a comprehensive program at a large US oncology facility and briefly review the education/training, systems, practices, and processes all focusing on "ensuring a safe chemotherapy experience." Suggested best practices will be highlighted that all organizations can adopt to prevent oral chemotherapy errors.
