Abstract:
New scientific discoveries have led to the discovery of pathways that can be targeted in the battle against cancer. New targeted therapy clinical trials are more complex and require planning and education to safely execute. Ensuring patient safely during their participation in a clinical trial requires careful planning and development of materials to educate the staff nurses, patient and family members what measures are required for participation and their role in the successful completion of the trial. Also, patients who travel to a comprehensive care center to participate in a clinical trial may present to the local emergency room after returning to their home area and information is needed by the local physician regarding the medications that the patient is receiving. The research nurse needs to review the clinical trial requirements and receive input from the principal investigator as needed. Then educational material needs to be developed for the patient and family to ensure safe participation. These materials will also assist in the success of the clinical trial. These materials include drug-drug (including herbal supplements) interactions, food-drug interactions, clinic appointments, specimen collection, instructions on what to do for anticipated side effects of treatment, proper handling and storage of medication and contact information. A patient can give a copy of this material to their home area physician so that they can under stand what the patient is receiving and do appropriate interventions if required. Evaluation is seen in the execution of clinical trials with fewer deviations and violations. Safety is enhanced as those involved with the care of the patient have access to these educational materials. Thus, research nurses must be innovative in creating educational material that patients can use so that clinical trials can be executed safely for everyone involved.
