A free ONS:Edge White Paper: Diarrhea Assessment and Control: Critical to Patient Quality of Life and Treatment Outcomes
In addition to being associated with the underlying cancer, diarrhea may also be related to cancer treatment. A potentially ongoing challenge for cancer patients, diarrhea may also be life threatening if inadequately managed. To control and minimize the effects of diarrhea, a thorough evaluation combined with nutritional and pharmacologic measures is key. The White Paper briefly summarizes the impact of diarrhea, assessment of diarrhea, the role of the oncology nurse, and various management approaches that include evidence-based guideline recommendations.
