Poor adherence to oral chemotherapy during maintenance therapy for acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is significantly associated with relapse. A literature review and evidence summary, which was gathered and processed by a cross-campus evidence-based practice workgroup (EBP), demonstrated that lack of understanding among patients and families about medication management is one of several significant barriers to medication adherence.
As a result of the evidence, clinic nurses implemented standardized education to pinpoint critical opportunities for medication adherence. A discussion of the evolution of the EBP workgroup, clinic nurse involvement, and impact on patients and families will be included.
