7.8 Pharmacy Drug Accountability
Occasionally, commercially available agents not supplied through a study may be deemed “investigational” as part of the Health Canada No Objection Letter (NOL). Any parenteral agent deemed investigational that is administered in the POGO Satellite Clinic program must have lot numbers and expiration dates recorded and available for review. In addition, the start and end time of parenteral infusion must be documented and available for review as per the protocol requirements. Furthermore, families should be encouraged to fill oral medication prescriptions at the retail pharmacy of the POGO Satellite Clinic community hospital or specialized childhood cancer program tertiary hospital to optimize data collection.
Medication reconciliation must be completed at time of clinical assessment and accurately reflect the current list of medications of the patient. Medication compliance must also be documented.
