NCODA is proud to announce the recent publication of the Patient-Centered Standards for Medically Integrated Dispensing: ASCO/NCODA Standards in the Journal of Clinical Oncology! Read the complete article here: Patient-Centered Standards for Medically Integrated Dispensing: ASCO/NCODA Standards. Supplemental information can be found at www.asco.org/mid-standards.
The purpose of these Standards is to elevate oncology patient care by outlining standards for medically integrated dispensing of oral anticancer drugs and supportive care medications. As noted in the publication: “The findings of the systematic review were consistent with the NCODA patient-centered standards for patient relationships and education, adherence, safety, collection of data, documentation, and other areas. NCODA standards were adopted and used as basis for these American Society of Clinical Oncology/NCODA standards.”
