HOPA Introduces Scope Of Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Practice
Date:10/22/2013

CHICAGO, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As oncology treatments become more personalized and complex, the role of the hematology/oncology pharmacist has expanded and become more comprehensive.  Recognizing that there is a significant disconnect in how hematology/oncology pharmacists are perceived by the public and, even other healthcare providers, and the crucial contributions they make to the cancer care team, the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacist Association (HOPA) developed a comprehensive document detailing their important role.

The Scope of Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Practice is the first document to clearly define the knowledge, skills and functions of the hematology/oncology pharmacist, primarily related to direct patient care, and to promote a better understanding of this ever-growing profession. As a specialty area within pharmacy practice, the oncology pharmacist plays a vital role in treatment selection, management, research, education and even performance improvement.

We hope that publishing this scope doc
