Oncology/Hospice

page-4_img02Oncology/Hospice

Hospice patients are special patients with special needs. At PharmacyMax

Labs we understand those needs and we work closely with Hospice

organizations to help manage patient’s symptoms through custom

medications. Sometimes simply reducing the number of medications a patient

is taking by combining several medications into one easy-to- take dosage form

like a suspension, suppository, or transdermal cream can greatly affect the

quality of the patient’s life. Or, if the patient has uncontrollable pain,

sometimes a combination of different pain medications makes all the

difference in controlling that pain.

Our pharmacists are trained to provide patient education and counseling to

help ensure the highest level of treatment success and patient safety.  We work

with the Oncologist and other healthcare professionals in a team effort to

assure cancer patients receive safe, efficient, quality care.
