Help-sheets on Cytotoxic Drugs for Caregivers
In the realm of cancer treatment, cytotoxic drugs take center stage in oncology departments. However, these potent players pose risks for the dedicated professionals dealing with them. As the landscape of their use constantly shifts—indications, methods, and administration venues evolving—what precautions should be embraced to minimize exposure?
The INRS have now produced arsenal of documents (leaflets and posters) guiding caregivers how to handle cytotoxic drugs safely. Whether navigating the healthcare battlefield or working from home, the key to a secure performance lies in adopting both collective and individual prevention measures. Safety is the encore to every healthcare or home-setting act.
Note: the documents are currently only available in French
