Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trial
Oral Adherence in Hematological Oncology Agents and Impact on Comorbid Therapy Adherence
The objective of this study is to improve medication, symptom, and disease management of patients with hematological malignancies and multiple chronic conditions (2 or more conditions in addition to cancer) through care coordination between pharmacists working in oncology practices and those working in primary care or community practices (Pharmacists Coordinated care Oncology Model [PCOM]).
This is a pilot study in which the investigators will examine the association between outcome measures, but the study design and sample size are insufficient to quantify the impact of OAA initiation or OAA adherence on adherence to chronic medications. This pilot study and data analyses are being done in preparation for a larger, controlled study.
