Administration of Systemic Therapy

Systemic therapy is high risk medication and, therefore, must be prepared, administered and handled according to specific guidelines. 
The NSH Cancer Care Program has established standards and policies to support quality safe systemic therapy practices: 
    • Safe Handling Policy

For the current cancer systemic therapy policies please visit the NSHA Policy website.
All of these policies are aligned with the Canadian Association of Nurses in Oncology’s Standards and Competencies for Cancer Chemotherapy Nursing Practice and the Canadian Association for Pharmacy in Oncology’s Standards of Practice for Oncology Pharmacy in Canada
