Back to Basics: Why Protocols are the KEY to Efficacious Side-Effect Management

Dr Lindsay Peterson sits down with a multidisciplinary group of physicians, to discuss the wider picture surrounding protocols within chemotherapy side-effect management. They consider the often challenging integration of practices such as scalp cooling, and discuss their tried and tested approaches, detailed workflows, and the importance of interdisciplinary buy-in within their medical institutions, which has had a real impact on outcomes – and simultaneously empowered their patients as a result.

Key topics discussed:

03:23 - Scalp cooling requires multidisciplinary buy-in

04:27 - The panel explain the scalp cooling workflow at their sites

07:23 - Self-empowerment of patients

09:30 - Nurses as "super-users" of scalp cooling

14:12 - All patients should be given the choice to scalp cool

22:52 - The Dutch Scalp Cooling Registry

33:17 - Scalp Cooling Times

Guests

Dr Lindsay Peterson, Dr Steven Isakoff, Elisa Mills, Mikel Ross, and Dr Corina van den Hurk
