The two NCI organizations that I have been affiliated with have both required a chemotherapy consent for any chemotherapy- regardless of the indication. The classification as an anti-cancer or anti-neoplastic drug warrants consent. For MoAbs, typically there is a separate MoAb consent for non-oncology diagnoses. Generally speaking, all treatment that has any uncertainty and risk, requires informed consent. There are a lot of hands in the pot that determine what requires consent and what doesn’t.. state law/scopes, FDA, etc- so this might not be uniform across the board. Hope this helps Jenn

What do other institutions require as far as chemotherapy consents for medications like biologics for non malignant diagnoses or off service (ex: GI) patients? Do you require chemotherapy consents still for these? Does anyone have a standard work for what medications/situations require a chemotherapy consent?
