Oncology pharmacy is an evolving specialty area of pharmacy practice. Pharmacists in this a specialty area ensure the safety and appropriateness of anticancer therapy for patients through their training and expertise in oncology diseases and management. Oncology pharmacists have become embedded in many healthcare teams, providing direct patient care or participating in clinical decision making. Oncology pharmacists may also operate in sterile compounding, specialty pharmacy, clinical research, or adminstrative roles.
On behalf of Pharmacy, we invite you to share your experiences in the field of oncology pharmacy to advance our field of practice. We hope this Special Issue will inspire others to futher develop their clinical practice, implement new services, and continue to advocate on behalf of the oncology patients we serve.
