National Chemotherapy Board, Good Practice Guideline
The definitive version of the National Chemotherapy Board, Good Practice Guideline: Promoting Early Identification of Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapies Side Effects has now been published
This guidance has been produced by the National Chemotherapy Board in response to concerns that patients often delay reporting serious Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy (SACT) side effects to dedicated help lines. Two complementary approaches to improve side effect reporting are suggested:
Empowerment focuses on equipping patients to take responsibility for identifying and reporting important side effects and may be mediated via technology.
Proactive monitoring includes clinician interventions (e.g. telephone support or home visits).
