Abstract

This article outlines the management strategy for the administration of the new anti-cancer drug cetuximab (Erbitux) in this case to private patients in Dorset using an independent service provider (Healthcare at Home) to administer the drug. Use of cetuximab in cancer care seems set to increase and this will place significant demand on the capacity of chemotherapy units. A strategy of home administration - or perhaps in a satellite chemotherapy unit - after initial exposure is feasible
