Chemotherapy Reference Card for Nurses

I would like to share with you a recent initiative by International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR) Palliative Access/ PAX Program and MNJ Institute of Oncology and Regional Cancer Hospital in Hyderabad.

Virginia LeBaron who is a Nurse in the INCTR Palliative Access/ PAX Program has developed a handy pocket chemotherapy reference card for oncology nurses at MNJ. It describes frequently administered chemotherapeutic drugs at MNJ, indications for their use, common side effects, and specific nursing considerations for each drug. I am grateful to Virginia and Dr Gayatri Palat (who is a consultant in Palliative Care at MNJ) for giving me the permission to use this blog to disseminate their work.
