The Department of Pharmacy is an integral part of the Comprehensive Cancer Support Program. The special needs of cancer patients are served by a team led by John M. Valgus, PharmD, BCOP, CPP, an expert in the use of medication in the cancer treatment setting.
Pharmacy works with others in the CCSP to help patients with:
- Symptom management
- Chemotherapy education
- Anticoagulation (blood-thinning) medication management
- Checking for drug interactions
- Checking for drug interactions and safety concerns with herbal or vitamin supplements
If you feel you can benefit from any of these services or if you feel a pharmacist could help you in any other way during your care at the N.C. Cancer Hospital, please ask your health care provider to contact the pharmacy at 919.843.0630 or email John Valgus to request a consultation.
