Chemotherapy and biotherapy are now being administered for a number of noncancerous conditions. Nurses caring for these patients should be familiar with the conditions and why the drugs are being used. Chemotherapy for Non-Oncology Conditions will help you develop an understanding of the treatment options for several nonmalignant conditions.
Get an in-depth understanding of some of the symptoms you typically see while treating patients receiving chemotherapy. The Chemotherapy Symptom Management Bundle packages five common side effects and complications from chemotherapy and presents evidence-based information on each in short courses that can be taken all at once or spread out over six months.
Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) is one of the most distressing side effects of cancer and its treatment. Explore its prevention, assessment, and management so that you can better provide evidence-based care to those at risk for or experiencing it.
Clinical trials are an important part of advancing patient care, and nurses who coordinate clinical trials require a specialized skill set. This interactive course will provide you with the information required to be successful as a clinical trials nurse and help you begin to apply your new knowledge to manage clinical trials and care for patients on them.
Among adults, cognitive impairment has been reported in up to 80% of patients with brain tumors, 70%–80% of patients with lung cancer, and 40% of patients with acute myeloid leukemia. It has also been reported in up to 75% of patients with breast cancer and in patients treated with bone marrow transplantation after high-dose chemotherapy. In addition, childhood cancer survivors may have long-term changes in cognitive function. Make sure you have the skills needed to address this common side effect, which can be exceptionally challenging for patients as well as their loved ones.
