abstract

  • Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (emesis) can significantly affect a patient's quality of life, leading to poor adherence with further chemotherapy treatment. In addition, nausea and vomiting can result in other serious complications and deterioration of the patient's status. These guidelines explore the prevention, treatment, and management of various types of emesis experienced by cancer patients, such as breakthrough, radiation-induced, and anticipatory. © Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
