Abstract

Nearly one third of cancer patients who receive chemotherapy experience severe nausea and/or vomiting in anticipation of treatment. Antiemetic drugs are generally of little value in controlling this type of side effect. In this article, Dr Redd discusses four behavioral methods that have proven effective in reducing the distress associated with cancer chemotherapy. He also encourages physicians to become better acquainted with behavioral intervention as a form of treatment not only of chemotherapy side effects but also of other problems associated with comprehensive cancer therapy.
