Reply To: Chemotherapy Administration for Non-Oncologic Diagnosis
We use the Chemotherapy and Biotherapy curriculum for Non-oncology patients from APHON. Unfortunately it has not been updated since 2012. And then we have them complete 3 competencies before they can administer independently.

I was curious how other institutions address administration of chemotherapy for non-oncologic/malignant diagnoses. An example would be IV cyclophosphamide for a rheumatologic diagnosis. Do you require the nurse administering the drug to be a chemotherapy verified nurse? We are seeing more of these cases recently and want to develop a standard at our institution. I appreciate hearing from you as to what practices/policies you have in place.
