Cochrane review summary for cancer nursing : drug therapy for cancer-related fatigue
Chan, Raymond (2010) Cochrane review summary for cancer nursing : drug therapy for cancer-related fatigue. Cancer Nursing, 34(3), pp. 250-251.
Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is one of themost debilitating symptoms in patients with cancer. It is prevalent at the time of diagnosis and during and after antineoplastic treatment and in patients with advanced disease. The multifactorial and complex nature of CRF makes it challenging for health professionals to identify a clear underlying mechanism and manage this symptom effectively. Often, the management plan for CRF (whether pharmacological or nonpharmacological) can be further complicated by the coexistence of other symptoms. This systematic review1 is therefore important in informing health professionals on the effectiveness of pharmacological management for CRF.
