Cancer & Blood Disorders Center Pharmacy Services

The Cancer Center team includes a dedicated clinical pharmacist from the Nicklaus Children's Hospital Pharmacy, who is assigned exclusively to support patients from the Center.

The pharmacist provides patient care recommendations on pharmacotherapy and assesses drug interactions, drug dosages, and drug effects. They accompany the Cancer Center team on daily rounds and provide counseling to families of patients regarding medication use and administration. They also help with the transition to home care, ensuring that each patient has appropriate medications when leaving the hospital.

The pharmacist is just a phone call away for parents once they are home, providing ongoing support with medications, as needed. The provision of a clinical pharmacist to serve the Cancer Center offers a continuum of care for patients, ensuring that a specialist familiar with each child’s unique needs and physiological response is available throughout the course of treatment.

In addition, the hospital’s Outpatient Pharmacy supports the Center by stocking the highly specialized drugs required for the care of cancer patients. The Center also coordinates the selective use and storage of National Cancer Institute research drugs.

When Mateo was just two years old, his parents were shocked to discover that their toddler developed leukemia. They met with the hematology and oncology specialists at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and began a treatment protocol that brought Mateo back to health—along with some entertainment from his spirited little sister! Mateo, now 10, is a healthy, typical kid who loves running around with his friends.
