Audiologic Variability Among Patients Undergoing Cisplatin Treatment (WEBS0620607)

Course Description

The article in this SIG 6 activity focuses on the audiologic variations seen among patients undergoing the same type of ototoxic drug treatment (cisplatin). Results show a large amount of audiologic outcome variability among the two patients examined, despite similar demographic factors, drug treatments, and types of cancer. Factors relating to ototoxic susceptibility are discussed, and the importance of otoxicity monitoring programs for early detection of audiologic change is highlighted

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe risk factors for cisplatin ototoxicity and the range of possible audiologic outcomes following cisplatin chemotherapy

Assessment Type
Self-assessment—Think about what you learned and report on the Completion Form how you will use your new knowledge.
