A "Review of Complementary and Alternative Medicine Practices Among Cancer Survivors," available as a journal article and podcast, discusses how nurses can play a critical role in the assessment and education of CAM use within survivor programs.
"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).

"Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting: Challenges and Opportunities for Improved Patient Outcomes," available as a journal article and podcast, reviews evidence-based guidelines for assessing and managing chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). The latest developments in CINV therapy and the expanding knowledge of CINV pathophysiology also are discussed.

This 18-minute slideshow provides an overview of management principles for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) in two parts (1 and 2). The discussion focuses on highly, moderately, and low emetogenic chemotherapy regimens and management strategies for them. A key point is prevention of CINV as the goal of care, with an emphasis on a proactive rather than reactive approach.

This 13-minute slideshow reviews patient- and treatment-related factors that influence an individual’s risk for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Also see “Emetogenic Risk of Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Agents,” a guide for calculating a regimen’s risk for causing CINV.
This three-minute slideshow walks you through the pathophysiology of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV), including the neurologic pathways involved in CINV.

Researchers are looking at new ways to deliver some antiemetics for managing chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). The 5-HT3 receptor antagonist granisetron is available orally and now as a transdermal patch. Studies have shown that the patch, which is placed on a patient’s skin 24–48 hours before chemotherapy, is just as effective as the oral capsule, which will be beneficial for patients who are unable to swallow pills (Hawkins & Grunberg, 2009).

Estimates suggest that more than 70% of patients receiving chemotherapy will experience at least some level of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) (Rogers & Blackburn, 2010). For patients, CINV is among the most feared and distressing side effects, yet many healthcare providers underestimate its toll and severity and therefore manage it inadequately.

Two brief ONS slideshows review the basics of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). The first provides a definition and general overview of CINV, including the five types of CINV. The second is a three-minute refresher discussing the pathophysiology of CINV, including the neurologic pathways involved.
