Abstract

Technologies and cancer therapies develop at a rapid pace, which makes staying current with changes difficult for nurses. Newer cancer modalities combine surgery or interventional radiology techniques to deliver regional chemotherapy, limiting systemic toxicities. Chemotherapy-certified nurses must be available to assist with chemotherapy administration in nontraditional areas. This article provides an overview of how clinical trials were implemented using newer modalities that integrate surgery or interventional radiology to deliver regional chemotherapy in a research setting in a safe, effective manner.
