Provides you with the details and procedures needed to keep safe in the workplace. You'll find information on issues such as drug administration, management of spills, and safety measures as well as details on the adverse effects of hazardous drugs, and evidence of occupational hazardous drugs exposure.

As an oncology nurse, you have a daily responsibility for preparing and administering drugs used in the treatment of cancer. These hazardous drugs can alter DNA or affect other intracellular processes that interfere with cancer cell growth. For patients with cancer, the benefits of treatment generally outweigh the risks, but as a healthcare worker, you should take every precaution to avoid exposure to these hazardous drugs you handle. The third edition of Safe Handling of Hazardous Drugs provides nurses with the latest details and procedures needed to keep safe in the workplace.
