Our oncology pharmacists are your medication experts throughout your care with Yale Cancer Center. Patients are commonly taking numerous medications for their cancer or any other chronic condition(s). Oncology pharmacists, at Smilow Cancer Hospital and Smilow Cancer Care Centers, can educate you and help you manage any expected side effects of cancer treatment. Medication regimens can be complex and confusing, and our pharmacy team can provide guidance on how to take these medications, such as what time to take them, whether to take them on a full or empty stomach, and whether it is okay to take different medications together and so much more. Our pharmacists are here to help. Ask your physician or nurse to speak with our team to learn more!
