The purpose of this project was to improve the effectiveness of patient education given to new oncology patients in order to reduce the rate of emergency department admissions & the associated healthcare costs. This was achieved through development and implementation of a standardized chemotherapy/immunotherapy “chemo” patient education program in the Hematology Oncology clinic at Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
