Oncology pharmacy practice in the United States: Results of a comprehensive, nationwide survey
HOPA's Practice Outcomes and Professional Benchmarking Committee (POPBC) conducted a multi-organization, voluntary survey of HOPA members between March of 2021 and January of 2022. The purpose was to better understand the landscape of oncology pharmacy at healthcare organizations throughout the United States.
The research examined: institutional description, job function, staffing, and training/certification. Data were evaluated using descriptive statistics. The analysis found that as the number of patients with cancer rises, the oncology workforce must grow. The current oncology pharmacy practice landscape can serve as a foundation for future research, metrics, and benchmarks.
This research was published in the Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice.
