Pharmacists Optimizing Oncology Care Excellence in Michigan (POEM)


POEM is a collaboration between two statewide Collaborative Quality Initiatives – MOQC (Michigan Oncology Quality Consortium) and MICMT (Michigan Institute for Care Management and Transformation) – and was developed to assist oncology practices with improving patient care and outcomes through integration of clinical oncology pharmacists in direct patient care. Clinical oncology pharmacists will provide clinical care to high-risk oncology patients in oncology practices across the state of Michigan.
