The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC), Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA), National Community Oncology Dispensing Association (NCODA), and Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) partnered together to create a resource for providers, and patients and caregivers on oral chemotherapy agents. The patient education sheets include information on medication names and pronunciation, approved uses, dose and schedule, drug and food interactions, the best practice guidelines for safe handling, administration, and disposal of oral chemotherapy agenzts by patients and caregivers; management strategies for the most common side effects; and pregnancy, sexual activity, and contraception information. Each sheet also has an area to list from which pharmacy the patient will receive the medication. The document and the website also provide the link to the individual product website, prescribing information, and product resources, if available.
