Home chemotherapy for children with cancer.
A program was established in which the parents of children with cancer were trained to administer intravenous chemotherapy to the children in their homes.
The main objectives of this program (Home Intravenous Chemotherapy by Parents [HICP]) were to improve the quality of life for children with cancer and their parents and to decrease the cost of medical care for these children by decreasing the number of clinic visits and hospital stays intended solely for the administration of chemotherapy.
