As with other professions, pharmacists have experienced a change from traditional drug-oriented services, including distribution and preparation, toward patient-oriented services. Many professional organisations and societies believe that pharmacists have a pivotal role in the provision of information in oncology, hospice and palliative care; pharmacists should be integral members of interdisciplinary teams. High-quality cancer care requires both traditional and expanded pharmacist activities, including a variety of clinical, educational, administrative and support responsibilities. This chapter describes the pharmacists' roles and responsibilities in the provision of care to cancer patients, with a particular emphasis on communication and the promotion of patients' treatment adherence.

Keywords:   pharmacists, oncology, palliative care, cancer care, cancer patients, communication, treatment adherence
