Latest CURE Connections Video Series Reviews the Risks of Chemotherapy-induced Nausea and Vomiting (CINV) and How to Prevent It


Cure Media Group launches new CURE Connections series to help combat misperceptions and fears about CINV, which can be an impediment to appropriate cancer care.

PLAINSBORO, N.J. November 05, 2015 -- CURE Media Group announces the release of a new series of videos as part of CURE Connections®, a video platform designed specifically for patients with cancer. CURE Connections offers videos on the personal journeys of patients with cancer, providing a comprehensive approach to issues facing patients and their families. The latest CURE Connections series explores strategies for the management and prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).

Many patients with cancer experience CINV to some degree or other. While it is often preventable or treatable, acquiring CINV is one of the greatest fears that cancer patients may have. Most significantly, misperceptions and fear of CINV can be impediments to effective disease management. Now, through this new series, CURE Connections dispels CINV myths and provides patients, their families and health care providers with the information they need to address chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting.
