Cancer Therapy: Prescribing and Administration Basics is a helpful handbook that guides multidisciplinary hematology/oncology practitioners in the practical, day-to-day aspects of cancer therapy prescribing, verification, admixing, administration, and billing. This valuable resource will help practitioners to optimize patient compliance, drug efficacy, and safety by providing patient counseling tips, proper safety and dispensing of oral cancer therapy information, and clinically significant drug interactions.

Cancer Therapy: Prescribing and Administration Basics is also a useful text for healthcare professionals whose primary area of practice is not hematology/oncology but who may be responsible for verifying, preparing, dispensing, or administering cancer therapy agents. This valuable text will provide them with practical information to accurately verify cancer therapy orders before drug preparation and administration and ensure safe use.

Features and benefits of Cancer Therapy: Prescribing and Administration Basics include:

• Dosing calculations in obese and pediatric patient populations

• The difference between writing, verifying, and administering normal/dose versus high/dose cancer therapy

• A checklist of factors to consider for appropriate cancer therapy prescribing, verifying, and admixing before administration

• Practical issues to consider for different routes or methods of cancer therapy administration (eg, intrathecal, intraperitoneal, outpatient continuous infusion pumps, oral)

• Real-life case examples, practice cases, and clinical pearls and tips
