Nurses Can Promote Benefits of NK-1 Receptor Antagonists for CINV

"Use of Neurokinin-1 Receptor Antagonists in Patients Receiving Moderately or Highly Emetogenic Chemotherapy," available as a journal article and podcast, discusses the use of neurokinin-1 (NK-1) receptor antagonists in managing chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Oncology nurses often critically influence patients’ selection of CINV therapy and can play a significant role in increasing awareness about the benefits of adding an NK-1 receptor antagonist to standard prophylactic regimens for acute and delayed CINV.
