Chemotherapy is an important part of the treatment of many cancers, and if used appropriately can be a valuable part of medical treatment. The decision whether to proceed with chemotherapy is often emotive and will be based on owner and patient factors, availability of treatment and the disease itself.  The use of chemotherapy drugs in clinical practice has safety implications for staff. Strict adherence to safety precautions must be maintained, including personal protective equipment and the use of specifically designed administration equipment.

**Nurse Congress Proceedings will be available on a USB in your congress bag
