Pharmacy

 

The Stephenson Cancer Center pharmacy consists of the infusion pharmacy, retail pharmacy, and the clinical pharmacy team. Our pharmacists are an extension of the patient care team and work closely with your physicians to provide seamless, convenient, and safe care.

Our pharmacy has access to patients’ medical records, doctors’ notes, and up-to-date laboratory results that assist us in ensuring the safety and optimal care of our patients.

 The OU Department of Pharmacy is committed to supporting the cancer center's mission as it applies to the safe and effective use of drugs. To achieve this outcome we recognize and support the concept that the pharmacy staff is an integrated part of the multidisciplinary approach to patient care, education, and research. 

Inherent in this philosophy is the concept that pharmacy has the primary responsibility for drug information and is accountable to apply that knowledge as the “patient’s advocate” for all drug therapy, drug delivery, research and education. This responsibility requires the pharmacy to play an active role in both original and supportive research along with educational programs designed for patients, hospital staff and the community.
