A literature review was conducted to determine the best way to provide chemotherapy education to patients. Sixteen articles that employed various teaching methods (e.g., video recordings, in-person class) were identified. Some educational methods have been proven to decrease anxiety, which allows patients to retain more information. Many ways can be used to provide chemotherapy education, and no method has been proven to be significantly more effective than another. Maximum retention is largely based on patient preference.
