Minimize Exposure to Oral Anticancer Drugs in the Community Pharmacy
You'll see more guidance about how to handle oral anticancer drugs in community pharmacies.
Pharmacies will dispense more of these drugs...such as abiraterone, bicalutamide, imatinib, and tamoxifen.
Be alert every step of the way to minimize exposure while handling these meds...especially with uncoated or cut tabs and unsealed liquids. Residue from contaminated surfaces can be absorbed through the skin or mucous membranes...or ingested from contaminated hands.
