|Abstract: ||The extensive use of cytotoxic drugs in the treatment of cancer patients represents a health risk for all staff involved in the preparation and handling of such drugs.
This qualifies as an occupational health hazard and the two groups with the highest levels of exposure are pharmacists who dispense these drugs and nursing staff who administer them . Equally other staff involved in their compounding, as well as logistical and training personnel are likely to be exposed.|
