The challenges patients face during intensive induction therapy

Thomas W. LeBlanc

June 21, 2021

During the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting, Know AML spoke with Thomas W. LeBlanc, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, US. We asked, What challenges do patients experience during intensive induction therapy and how to overcome them? LeBlanc describes psychological symptoms associated with receiving intensive chemotherapy, and proposes improvements to the patient experience. This involves the integration of specialist palliative care, which focuses on symptom assessment and management, and providing support for the patient and family.
