Errors and nonadherence in pediatric oral chemotherapy use.

Walsh K, Ryan J, Daraiseh N, et al. Oncology. 2016;91:231-236.

Medication errors and nonadherence to medications contribute to increased use of health care resources. This study sought to better characterize the relationship between medication errors and nonadherence in children on oral chemotherapy. Researchers found both to occur in the same population and suggest that family and health system interventions could help mitigate errors and nonadherence in pediatric patients with cancer.
