Abstract

Focal points:
Self-completion questionnaires were used to determine issues with compliance surrounding the use of oral chemotherapy in haematology patients
Forty-two patients were identified of which 40 responded over a two-month period
Twenty-one respondents (52.5 per cent) indicated that they experienced difficulties in taking their medication
Difficulties were not apparently related to the time of dosing; the size of dose units (hydroxyurea) and foil packed agents caused particular difficulties
