Course Details

Overview

In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration has approved many new anticancer medications that are taken primarily by mouth. In fact, an estimated 30% of cancer drugs in development are oral, and the trend is increasing.

Some practitioners tout oral chemotherapies as more convenient and flexible. But are they really? The change from parenteral to oral cancer medications brings new challenges. Patients taking oral drugs may end up being seen by many different healthcare team members, some of whom may be unaware of the possible toxicities of these therapies—or even that the patient’s taking them.

The goal of this course is to provide nurses with information on how to improve management of patients receiving oral chemotherapy.
