An infection-for patients whose immune systems have been compromised by cancer or due its treatment-can have devastating consequences, often leading to long-term illness or even death. Prevention of infection, then, takes on a profound role, significantly reducing morbidity and mortality in this patient population. Putting Evidence Into Practice: Improving Oncology Patient Outcomes-Prevention of Infection Resource provides you with information on interventions known to prevent infections in patients with cancer. Updated and revised from the material first introduced in the 2006 ONS Putting Evidence into Practice (PEP) resource and an article published in the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing, this publication presents the latest information on prevention of infection, and incorporates evidence in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation as well as evidence in pediatric patients with cancer. You'll also find information on the prevention of febrile neutropenia, one of the most concerning complications of cancer therapy. Like the other stand-alone PEP resources, this resource details the problem as well as the incidence and examines issues surrounding survivorship and late effects, assessment, and interventions. In addition, you can find a case study on prevention of infection.
