Oral Chemotherapy Drugs Require Safe Handling, Disposal
"In an effort to address this serious public health issue, we intern pharmacists at Chapman University School of Pharmacy (CUSP) have begun an advocacy initiative to assess the current knowledge and practice of handling and disposing of oral anticancer chemotherapy drugs by patients, caregivers, providers, and pharmaceutical industries through survey research. We expect to identify potential barriers that cause gaps in knowledge, practice, and awareness of proper handling and disposal of OCs. Upon completion of our study, we hope to propose a practical solution by formulating an educational and practice model involving all stakeholders."
