Abstract: At the National Cancer Centre Singapore, which is currently the largest ambulatory cancer centre in Singapore, clinical pharmacists have taken upon responsibilities to provide direct pharmaceutical care in the center's lymphoma team since 2006. Given the complexity and intricacies of lymphoma treatments, clinical pharmacists are often positioned to ensure supportive care is optimized among these patients. Besides management of chemotherapy-related and supportive care issues, clinical pharmacists play a pivotal role in guiding cost-effective and safe prescribing. In collaboration with the medical team, they are also involved in conducting practice research in order to optimize the delivery of pharmaceutical care. In this report, the dedicated services and research activities conducted by clinical pharmacists of a lymphoma team will be discussed. © The Author(s) 2012 Reprints and permissions:
