Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) and other oral chemotherapy related adverse events are commonly feared by patients. Pharmacists and nurses provide many important services in caring for these patients. It is important to be able to recognize CINV risk factors and know the antiemetic therapies available for the patients. The development of a large number of targeted therapies for cancer in the past decade has led to new mechanism-based adverse effects of new drug classes that affect virtually every organ system in the body. The role of the pharmacist and nurse is to provide patient and family education, healthcare provider education, side effect prevention and management. This activity provides an update for pharmacists and nurses on the antiemetic therapies available and techniques for managing the unique adverse events associated with oral chemotherapy.
The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists and nurses.
