The Challenge.

People living with cancer - including patients, family members and caregivers – have an ever greater need for information about the disease itself and about the wider physical and emotional realities related to it. Improved therapies mean that more and more people are living longer with cancer, which has increased the demand for information and support. In the U.S., a growing number of cancer patients self administer therapies at home rather than going to a cancer center for chemotherapy or radiation treatment. This means that the pharmacist is often the last healthcare provider to speak with a patient before they initiate their therapy.

The Solution.

LLS designed and launched specialized training courses for Walgreens pharmacists so they better understand cancer, gain confidence in speaking with people affected by cancer and are a resource for patients.
