Guide for use:Help on this term

Chemotherapy is cancer treatment that achieves its antitumour effect through the use of antineoplastic drugs that inhibit the reproduction of cancer cells by interfering with DNA synthesis and mitosis.

The completion date of chemotherapy is the date the last dose was administered during the course of treatment.

The completion date of chemotherapy is recorded regardless of whether the course of treatment is completed as intended, and regardless of the intent or timing of the chemotherapy.

Multiple entries are not permitted.

Dates relating to targeted therapies using a chemotherapy agent are included. Targeted therapies are treatments that use drugs or other substances to identify and attack specific cancer cells.

Dates of surgery, radiotherapy and other systemic treatments are collected as separate items. However, if a patient receives treatment with a protocol that includes different types of systemic therapy agents, for example, a chemotherapy agent and a hormone therapy agent, record the completion date of treatment in both relevant data items.
Collection methods:Help on this termThe information should be obtained from the patient’s medical record.
Comments:Help on this termCollecting the start and finish dates for treatment modalities will enable an estimate of treatment duration.
