Oncology nurses play a critical role in the assessment and management of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). Baseline and ongoing evaluation of physical function is a critical but often overlooked aspect of assessment of CIPN. The diversity of symptoms and the complexity associated with neuromuscular assessment lead to challenges in evaluation and management of CIPN. To meet this challenge, the authors devised a feasible algorithm to guide oncology nurses in the assessment and management of CIPN using techniques that can easily be implemented in a variety of clinical settings. Managing pain, maintaining safety, and maximizing physical function are the primary goals for nursing management of CIPN.
