Beth Sandy on Challenges of Managing Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea


Beth Sandy, CRNP, discusses the challenges that can arise when managing a patient's chemotherapy-induced nausea.

Beth Sandy, CRNP, a nurse practitioner at the Abramson Cancer Center, Penn Medicine, explains some of the challenges of managing a patient's chemotherapy-induced nausea.

Often, nausea caused by chemotherapy happens in the delayed setting, after the patient has gone home. This can make it difficult for providers to keep track of incidents. Additionally, nausea is more subjective than vomiting. Measuring the number or degree of instances of nausea requires a good line of communication between the clinician and the patient.
