The role of the Pharmacist in Ambulatory Care

03 November 2021 12:00 - 12:40

An overview of how the pharmacist is an important part of the Ambulatory Care MDT. The presentation will cover all aspects of the pharmacist role including setup, clinical oversight & validation as well as contributions to governance and medicines safety.

This will include real life examples of a well-established ambulatory treatment unit in operation at a large tertiary cancer centre and demonstrate that challenges can still present even in an experienced unit but more importantly how those challenges are overcome.

Finally we will cover the more practical elements of creating and administering a new or existing regime into the ambulatory setting.
