Due to the increasing prescription of oral anticancer therapies, the inpatient care pathway has shifted to an outpatient care pathway. This transformation requires an interdisciplinary coordination to provide a continuum of care and ensure therapeutic monitoring, as well as patient safety. To better support patients on oral anticancer therapies, a task group named "hospital-to-community pharmacist coordination" has been set up to create tools aiming at standardising the information exchanged between ambulatory and hospital pharmacists. A retrospective study examined the utilisation of the tools over a period of one year. The task group identified the expectations of all parties regarding the care pathways of patients undergoing oral chemotherapy, which lead to the creation of computerised exchange tools (integrated into the computerised patient's medical file). Over the course of this study, the cancer centre's pharmaceutical team contacted 425 ambulatory pharmacists regarding the prescription of oral chemotherapy to patients. Forty-two follow-ups from ambulatory pharmacists, gathering information on 34 patients, were submitted to the cancer centre pharmacists (7,7%). These first follow-ups allowed pharmaceutical responses regarding patient compliance, drug interaction and toxicities. Copyright © 2021 Académie Nationale de Pharmacie.
