Abstract

Objectives: To discuss the challenges associated with treating pain and altered sensations due to chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). Data Sources: Published research articles and clinical experience. Conclusion: Although there are still great challenges associated with preventing and treating pain and altered sensations due to CIPN, there are preventative strategies and therapeutic options that can certainly improve the quality of life of patients who have cancer. Implications for Nursing Practice: Oncology nurses can gain a better understanding of the available pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic strategies that can prevent and reduce pain associated with chemotherapy-induced neuropathy.
