Abstract

Safety measures against occupational exposure to anticancer drugs are practiced in line with guidelines; however, countermeasures against exposure for families in pediatric areas have not yet been considered. We investigated the recognition and practice of anticancer drug exposure measures for children and families by nurses working in pediatric cancer hospitals (15 facilities in total). The results suggest that the current situation of anticancer drug exposure measures, including family guidance, are not practiced adequately.
