Unrecognized need to refrigerate etoposide capsules leads to wasted drug

Etoposide capsules are a cold-chain medication used for small cell lung cancer that must be stored under refrigeration between 2°C and 8°C (36°F–46°F). A specialty pharmacy reported an error that resulted in a carton of etoposide 50 mg capsules being left out at room temperature overnight for about 12 hours.

In the 2023 American Psychological Association (APA) Work in America Survey, 77% of workers reported experiencing work-related stress in the last month, and 57% reported experiencing negative impacts because of work-related stress.
