Specialty Pharmacy Times®, a bi-monthly journal and daily news website serving the business and practice of specialty pharmaceuticals and therapy, has published and posted its sixth annual oncology-themed issue, which features an in-depth look at the complex world of oncology with insightful, authoritative articles by expert authors.
Focused on the unique role specialty pharmacists play in the delivery and management of oncology medications, the special issue features a comprehensive look at the ever-changing and always challenging oncology scene from emerging cancer treatments to new models of patient care for greater adherence to the high cost of medications.
More specifically, the special issue cover story discusses the importance of patient access to new and future oral oncology drugs and what is being done to guide patients in proper use for optimal results. Further in the special issue is an article on the implications of rising out-of-pocket costs on patients and spending growth for payers, as payers and pharmacy benefit managers may end up facing an enormous financial burden from cancer becoming more of a chronic condition treated by oral oncolytics, and eventually, oral immunotherapies. There is also a persuasive story looking at three current policy discussions influencing cancer drug development.
“By providing a platform for specialty pharmacy industry leaders to share their expertise and voice key concerns in their own words, Specialty Pharmacy Times brings together diverse perspectives from various disciplines and segments of the market,” said Davy James, managing editor of Specialty Pharmacy Times. “In this special oncology-themed issue, our authoritative authors bring cutting-edge vision and practical solutions to simplify the complex world of oncology to help specialty pharmacists, along with specialty nurses, physicians and payers, work diligently to assist individuals with cancer find their way on this most difficult journey.”
