Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) is one of the most common symptoms suffered by patients with cancer, and has been detailed in a wide selection of literature—from journal articles to book chapters—including a book chapter in Putting Evidence Into Practice: Improving Oncology Patient Outcomes.

You can now access the latest findings and information on CINV in the newly updated and revised Putting Evidence Into Practice: Improving Oncology Patient OutcomesChemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting Resource.

Written by Margaret M. Irwin, PhD, RN, MN, Jiyeon Lee, PhD, RN, Cheryl Rodgers, PhD, RN, CPNP, CPON®, Patty Star, RN, MSN, OCN®, and Joan Ralph Webber, RN, MSN, CNS, CRNI, OCN®, this new resource collects content from the CINV chapter in Putting Evidence Into Practice: Improving Oncology Patient Outcomes, first published in 2009, combined with new details and research on the topic. The resource includes

  • Updated pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic evidence for CINV through April 2011
  • Information regarding prevention, survivorship, and late effects and areas for research
  • Comprehensive synthesis of response rates for acute and delayed CINV with specific antiemetic regimens as found in the research in an easy-to-use table format
