All tagged chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting

Nothing puts fear into the heart of pharmacy students like the subject of Oncology. It’s easy to understand why. In most programs, students have a 2 - 5 week module where they go through the entirety of what is arguably the most complex subject in medicine.

Luckily, tl;dr pharmacy has your back. There are plenty of good reasons why you need to level up your chemo game:

  • It's on the NAPLEX
  • It's where the majority of pharmaceutical research dollars are going
  • Most practitioners avoid it like the plague, so you can give yourself a useful (read: profitable) skill set
  • Because you're interested in your profession and you like learning more about it (you ARE interested in your profession, right?)

As part of a series on topics in oncology, today we’ll be focusing on chemo-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Alright, buckle up and get ready.
