Review on Prevention of Medication Errors in Chemotherapy

Pankaj Bansal, Anurag Prasad.

Abstract
Chemotherapy also contributes to drug errors that are extremely vulnerable to significant damage. The objective of this review is to study the literature and incidences of chemical drug mistakes and the increased evidence of patients' participation in error prevention. Faults in administration are widespread in all prescription failures and harmful drug effects. Recent advancement in the field of oncology, including improved clinical care in clinic infusion units as well as the expansion to ambulatory conditions of oral chemotherapy, is likely to increase the risk, as patients have yet to undergo the preparation and administration level. While effective and significant therapeutic measures to reduce errors, the knowledge that patients still make mistakes in drug administration has been increasingly understood and may therefore be a valuable method for avoiding mistakes. Patients, however, require appropriate information, assistance and motivation to be 'vigilant friends.' Specific procedures for patients' safety are offered for example. Evidence shows that strong self-efficacy and expected success of particular protective measures raises the probability of error avoidance involvement.

Key words: Chemotherapy, Drug effects, Medication errors, Patient participation, Patient safety.
