KCCC has it own An Anti-Cancer Treatment Task Force Team which recruited a balanced group of professionals from medical oncology department, radiation oncology department, hematology department, pharmacy, nursing section, as well as, the quality improvement department.
This team works in harmony to coordinate between different departments in KCCC to bring any newly approved Anti-Cancer Treatment Protocol into light.
KCCC administration approved a template to present each Anti-Cancer Treatment Protocol in printed format. These pre-printed forms provide a standardized request for chemotherapies, oral targeted therapies, monoclonal antibodies, hormonal treatment, or even immunotherapy.
The Anti-Cancer Treatment Task Force Team is responsible for ensure that any newly approved protocol should be presented as a pre-printed form before use.
The selection of any anti-cancer treatment modality is the responsibility of the dedicated treating team. Medical oncologists have the full privilege to prescribe any anti-cancer treatment modality. Other specialities have partial privilege to prescribe any systemic treatment. For example; radiation oncologists are authorized to prescribe hormonal treatment in prostatic adenocarcinoma…etc.
In this section, all the approved anti-cancer protocols are listed. The primary physician is responsible for disclosure of all informations about the treatment plan, the expected adverse events, and the alternatives. He/she will be solely responsible for verifying the doses, providing the prescriptions, and administrating the medications.
Once the pharmacy received the prescription, the dedicated pharmacist will double check the prescription and doses before dispatching the treatment. For any query, the pharmacist should directly contact the prescribing physician for further clarifications.
