    Hi Sarah,

    At our outpatient clinic chemotherapy consents are good for six months. New consents are obtained if a child goes off study, new medications are added, or if treatment for that patient changes (new protocol).

    Good Afternoon-

    How often does your institution obtain consent for chemotherapy once the initial one is signed? 

    Example: does your institution obtain new consents at different cycles?

    Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
