PHOENIX, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Arizona Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Avella Specialty Pharmacy announce they will present a day of discussion about the latest advancements, trends and management of oral chemotherapy medications. The free event will take place on Feb. 9, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center, 1475 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale.

Local hematology/oncology community members will provide in-depth presentations on oral chemotherapy drugs including current trends, compliance and medication management. The event will feature two breakout sessions – one for nurses wherein they can earn complimentary CE credits and the other track for cancer patients and their families – as well as a town hall-style session featuring several local experts.

"More than 35 percent of the 400 cancer drugs in the pipeline are oral chemotherapy drugs. They clearly are the wave of the future," stated John Musil , Pharm.D., founder and CEO of Avella. "However, with so many breakthroughs, it's difficult for patients to stay on top of all of them.

Our hope is to provide similar discussions throughout the year as there is a growing need for this type of education."

Healthcare professionals will learn about current oral chemotherapy drug trends, compliance and best practices on how to provide adequate patient surveillance and support. Eric Sredzinski , Pharm.D., AAHIVE, Pharmacy Program Director, ADAP at Avella will lead this session. Continuing education credit will be provided to nurses.
