December 21, 2018


What are practices doing to prepare for the arrival of anticancer biosimilars, and how are nurses in particular being educated?

Well from our practice, we have a very large pharmacy, our own in-house pharmacy Rx to Go. They are preparing by meeting with the pharmaceutical companies and trying to find the best options payable as well as delivering the drug.

Then we work with the pharmacists there who give us education. For our care management department, we rolled that out in webinars to our nurses so that they’re well aware of the side effects and how to manage the patient.
