The Department of Pharmacy is committed to supporting the Moffitt Cancer Center mission as it applies to the safe and effective use of drugs and nutritional products, and their delivery technology.
To achieve this outcome we recognize and support the concept that the Pharmacy staff is a full and equal partner in a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, education and research. We are dedicated to producing professional staff who are capable of taking responsibility for optimizing the outcome of patient therapy and assuming a leadership role in an interdisciplinary decision making arena.
Inherent in this philosophy is the concept that Pharmacy has the primary responsibility for drug information and is accountable to apply that knowledge as the “patient’s advocate” for all drug therapy, drug delivery, research and education. This responsibility requires the Pharmacy to play an active role in both original and supportive research along with educational programs designed for patients, hospital staff and the community.
