The date of the first meeting of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee is not known. The first minutes to survive in the Archives are from November 29, 1978.
The Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee was responsible for recommending or assisting in the formulation of broad professional policies regarding all matters pertinent to drugs, and of programs designed to meet the needs of the professional staff for complete current knowledge on matters related to drugs and drug practices at the Ontario Cancer Institute. Some of the functions of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee included: assisting in the development of continuing education programs and other mechanisms to ensure that physicians and all health professionals were well informed with respect to current drug therapy, reviewing the pharmacy budget as necessary and recommending policies for the prescribing of drugs which would fall within that budget.
The Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee met not less than six times a year, more if necessary; and reported to the Medical Advisory Committee at least twice a year.
The Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee membership included: the Head of the Pharmacy Department, one representative from the Department of Medicine, one representative from the Department of Radiation Oncology, and one representative from the Department of Nursing.
R. Feld was the chair of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee from 1979 to 198?. The subsequent chairs of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee were C. Erlichman (1990-1991), M. Moore (1991-1992), and M. Minden (1992-1995).
