Abstract: Although much progress has occurred in the last decade regarding the management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, these remain among the most intolerable side-effects of treatment and patients continue to report the negative impact such symptoms have on their ability to enjoy life. Inadequate control of nausea and vomiting reduces patients’ quality of life and functional status and jeopardizes the delivery of optimal treatment, so making its management a priority for oncology health care workers. This article will reflect on past and present evidence regarding the management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting while highlighting some of the most recent scientific advances before drawing conclusions about the future management of this troublesome symptom for patients receiving chemotherapy.
