Abstract

Treatment-related dermatologic toxicities are common for patients with cancer. Rashes associated with dermatologic toxicities are best treated by a physician who specializes in dermatologic conditions resulting from cancer treatment, but scheduling and travel may present challenges for patients. This article describes a pilot project in which nurses used telemedicine technology to facilitate patient visits with an off-site dermatologist.
