Chemotherapy mini series Part 2: Practicalities of chemotherapy - safe administration, sensible treatment descisions

Lismoyne Hotel, 45 Church Road, Fleet Hampshire, GU51 4NE

This lecture will comprise two presentations. There will be information about safe handling of cytotoxic substances, including a summary of the rules governing use of cytotoxic substances in practice. Practical tips will be provided relating to chemotherapy handling and to side effect management. One of the safest steps to take when considering chemotherapy use is not to use it at all. Case selection is therefore an important part of optimal cytotoxic management practice. A series of cases will be presented with an explanation of how chemotherapy might be used in their management.

- How do we minimise cytotoxic substance exposure risk in practice?
- How do we decide who is a good candidate for chemotherapy?
- What is the best chemotherapy treatment for canine mast cell tumours?
- What are the alternatives to chemotherapy?
