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:

Proactive monitoring includes clinician interventions (e.g. telephone support or home visits).
