What are the responsibilities of the Nurse when administering cancer therapy?

Providing timely, relevant, sensitively delivered, culturally (in all senses, ethnicity, educational levels, social group and outlooks etc) education is a difficult and very important aspect of health care.

Given the need for patient and carer understanding of chemotherapy in the outpatient setting, their key partnership role in safe delivery of care, I would like to see more in this document about training of health carers in being able to effectively educate patients and carers about their chemotherapy drugs, adverse effects, establishing thresholds for reporting and effective reporting of adverse events to ensure appropriate triage.

Patient and carer role should have a designated heading in this document, in keeping with shared decision making, relationship and patient centred care model.

Forms which assess patient and carer understanding of chemotherapy regimen and adverse events could be included, if not in the ASCO documents mentioned in this wiki document ( I haven't checked on those referred docments yet and apologise if this is covered there)
