  • Overview

    A thorough medication review is essential in patients receiving cancer therapy.  An important element to discuss is the use of herbal medications with cancer patients.  Patients may use herbal supplements for a variety of reasons; to treat their cancer, mitigate side effects, and appease a friend or family member. This program will discuss the use of herbal supplements in cancer patients, and review some of the more common agents used focusing on potential herbal-disease and herbal-drug interactions and concerns.
