The Juravinski Cancer Centre has a systemic pharmacy that provides the intravenous chemotherapy drugs for patient treatment at our site. We have six pharmacists who assess physicians' orders to promote patient safety. Pharmacists will also interact with patients to assess wellness and previous chemotherapy side effects before the day's treatment. In addition, each pharmacist has a liaison with a Disease Site Team and participates in their program.

We also support clinical trials at the JCC, with specialized staff (one pharmacist and two technicians) and with all staff working on daily clinical trial patient treatment.

Pharmacy Technicians play a very important role at JCC.  Primarily, they work in our state of the art clean room, producing the intravenous chemotherapy products within a tech-check-tech program.

All of the pharmacy staff is tasked with detail oriented work which promotes patient treatment and safety at each chemotherapy visit.
