Financial toxicity is well recognized as a sequela of surviving cancer. As the number of survivors is expected to increase, so are costs associated with cancer treatments. Using a nurse–pharmacist collaborative model, efforts between oncology pharmacists and nurses may inform real-world practice solutions to improve medication access. Increased medication access may reduce out-of-pocket expenses for patients with cancer.

AT A GLANCE

  • Cancer treatment has led to increased financial difficulties in patients. 
  • Increased collaborative efforts between pharmacy and nursing colleagues may ease medication access for patients. 
  • Improved access to antineoplastic and supportive care medications may reduce financial toxicity for patients with cancer.
