Treatment regimens

♦ Give a detailed account of all treatment regimens including, where appropriate, recommended hydration and anti-emetic regimens and other procedures for avoiding toxicity.

♦ Always use generic names for all drugs unless there is a special case for not doing so.

♦ Nomograms for calculating drug dosages as mg/m2 body surface area are best given in an appendix.

♦ Ask relevant expert advisers to comment on the descriptions of the regimens, for example: medical oncologists and oncological pharmacists on chemotherapy regimens, radiation oncologists on radiotherapy regimens, and surgeons on surgical regimens and procedures.

♦ Recommend procedures for general management during treatment.
