Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting

Table of Contents

Population

Cancer is a severe issue in the modern world, as there is no unique solution and treatment to overcome this problem. What is more, researchers and scientists do not have an answer to the question of reasons and causes of its appearance at the present moment. However, it is possible to assume that stress factors and the way of life in big cities plays a crucial role in raising the risk of cancer. People of diverse ages, genders, and nationalities suffer from this illness. The inhabitants of metropolises are one of the groups with high risk. Ecological situation, stress in the office, and life tempo make their immune system weaker that leads to problems with the organism. Moreover, cancer is most widespread among human beings after 50 years who already have several chronic diseases. It is important to mention that environment is one of the critical factors that have to be taken into consideration. It is not only related to the place of living, but also to the type of relationships with other people, emotional well-being, financial situation, and the quality of life in general.

Intervention

Vomiting and nausea are not the direct consequences of having cancer; they usually occur in the case of chemotherapy treatment. It is necessary to mention that the sphere of academic interests is limited to the patients who suffer from these factors and who have cancer. Moreover, it would be beneficial to concentrate on the group of people who are especially nervous about their disease and not self-confident. These factors are essential as there is a hypothesis that the psychological and emotional well-being of a patient has major impacts on the level of nausea (Kamen et al., 2014). Moreover, it can be observed that several externalities must be taken into consideration. For example, the nurse has to learn more about the bad habits of the patient, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, or eating unhealthy food.

As for the therapy, it would be necessary to collaborate with healthcare agencies in order to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and provide comfortable conditions for a person. A nurse can ask for the specific equipment that would be beneficial for the process of treatment. What is more, the healthcare worker has to become a supervisor for the patient and control his daily activities, emotional well-being, and nutrition. The nurse needs to learn massage techniques as they are claimed to mitigate the consequences of chemotherapy (Suh, 2012). It is crucial to utilize ginger in order to relieve the symptoms of nausea and vomiting (Kamen et al., 2014). Emotional support and involvement in the process are an essential part of the successful treatment.

Comparison

The possible alternative variant is to find a way to improve a patient’s quality of life by using specific drugs. However, it requires financial support from the government or private foundations. Another option is to change the schedule of chemotherapy to make it less harmful for the organism.

Outcome

Relieving the symptoms of nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy is the needed outcome. After the therapy, they are supposed to occur not in a regular way and not in a severe form. The quality of life of a patient is expected to be better. Emotional well-being should become stable and controlled by a human.

Time

The time frame is expected to be around one year in order to investigate the results and get the required data for future researchers. In case of success, there would be more time needed to implement the innovative technologies.

I finished the first deliverable of a project presentation but had no time to finish my second deliverable. The writer revamped my first deliverable and made it much more appealing! Not only was I impressed with the content but I was so grateful for the time they took to redo the background. I have been under a lot of pressure at work and at home so this has been a great service when I have had little time! I appreciate the detail and help! Always on time and always exceeding expectations!
