EMRs Useful for Nurses Treating Patients With CAR T-Cell Therapy

Thursday, February 27, 2020

Electronic medical records (EMRs) are crucial for nurses to track adverse events and other important information for patients undergoing CAR T-cell therapy, explained Andrea Price, APN, associate director for clinical research at Washington University School of Medicine.


The EMR is really what we use to drive our ordering process for CAR Ts, but more importantly, it's really allowed us to dive into…nursing considerations for how you can document (on) your patients receiving CAR-T therapy, how we can capture really useful assessments to help drive their care for side effects, for toxicities, especially if the patients start to decline. We really try to capture that in a meaningful way to help nurses and physicians make the right decision every step along the way.
