Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) has far-reaching effects. CINV impairs quality of life, negatively impacts nutritional status, interferes with chemotherapy treatment, elevates the risk of nonadherence to chemotherapy, and increases the use of health care resources. Therapeutic advances in this field have resulted in a better understanding of CINV pathophysiology, and personalizing therapy for CINV according to patient risk factors and chemotherapy regimens. New antiemetic agents address some of the major unmet clinical needs in preventing and treating CINV, and it is critical for practitioners to understand novel mechanisms of action for these therapies and apply practice-changing evidence and guidelines to optimize care. For this activity, we are bringing together a panel of internationally recognized experts in the field to discuss how we can advance the care of these patients at risk for CINV.
Instructions For This Activity & Receiving Credit
This educational activity is directed toward nurses and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of cancer patients, both at risk for and experiencing CINV.
