Invitation to UKONS members : European survey of the care and management of CINV/RINV

UKONS members are invited to participate in the following survey. A study group of three oncologists and two nurses from the five largest EU states (UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy) has developed and translated a survey to assess the clinical incidence and management of CINV (chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting) and RINV (radiotherapy induced nausea and vomiting) across Europe.

Patient cohorts will also be surveyed to provide feedback on their experiences to compare with the views of the clinicians. Results will be made available in a clinical paper to be published later this year. This study is being supported by an arms-length educational grant from Norgine. This does not mean that UKONS is endorsing this research, nor should any member feel obliged to complete this study.

For further information and applications to participate in this survey of the care and management of CINV/RINV please email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
