Are Home-Based Chemotherapy Programs Safe?
At-home chemotherapy programs are on the rise, despite opposition from the Community Oncology Alliance and the American Society of Clinical Oncology. These organizations state that there is not enough evidence that receiving chemo infusions at home is safe; however, proponents argue that safety precautions taken by in-home infusion services are sufficient. Those advocating for at-home chemo also cite patient convenience, more space in hospital infusion suites, and less exposure to COVID-19 as advantages.
