Center for Cancer Care: Chemotherapy Treatment

St. Louis Chemotherapy Treatment

Throughout planning and treatment a Chemotherapy Certified and Oncology Certified Nurse (OCNŽ) will assist in coordinating the patient's care. An OCN will also prepare and administer most chemotherapy regimens in the physician's suite. Occasionally, it may be necessary for a patient to receive chemotherapy treatment in the outpatient infusion suite at St. Luke's Hospital or be admitted to the hospital's oncology floor for treatment. If the patient is to receive radiation therapy along with chemotherapy, an OCN will assist in coordinating this with the Radiation Oncology Department. Since many chemotherapy agents have the potential for side effects, routine blood tests are often required periodically during treatment. Other tests to monitor the patient's progress will be completed as recommended by the patient's physician.
