Altamonte Springs, FL (PRWEB) January 19, 2016
BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy (BioPlus), one of the nation’s leading innovative specialty pharmacies, provides best-in-class oncology therapy to patients undergoing cancer treatment. In an expansion of BioPlus’ patient support program, each oncology therapy patient now receives a ‘Therapy Comfort Care Kit,’ which is a collection of support items that can ease the discomforts of common cancer treatment side effects.
Difficult and unpleasant side effects are an unfortunate occurrence for many patients during oncology treatment, which can impact patient adherence. Easing side effects promotes better adherence. “A cancer diagnosis can feel overwhelming and the treatment can be challenging, so our Therapy Comfort Care Kit is a hands-on way that we support our cancer patients as they enter and continue the treatment process,” shares Nick Maroulis, Pharm.D., Vice President of Specialty Pharmacy Services at BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy.
Each kit offers time-proven items of support that give a measure of comfort during what can be a difficult treatment process. Each kit includes sunscreen, hand lotion, Biotene® mouth rinse (for dry mouth), hand sanitizer (for compromised immunity), non-slip socks, and a stress ball.
