Practices should be evaluated for cytotoxic chemotherapy extravasation
the ONA take:
The influence of patient experience in health care is driving a review of practices to ensure it plays a part in developing clinical practice guidelines.
This literature review sought to analyze the quality of evidence that supports management practices of cytotoxic drug extravasation and determine if the patient experience is taken into account.
A literature search identified all studies on strategies aimed at preventing surgical debridement and all studies evaluating the patient’s perspective on extravasation management published from the 1960s to July 2014.
The researchers found no conclusive evidence that one clinical strategy is more effective than another, and no studies evaluated management strategies from the patient perspective.
The researchers suggest further outcomes-based studies are needed for extravasation management guidelines and how treatment impacts the patient.
In addition, they conclude that research into the patient experience of extravasation management needs to be addressed.
This literature review sought to analyze the quality of evidence that supports management practices of cytotoxic drug extravasation.
