In this podcast, Dr. Gary Lyman discusses nausea and vomiting. Some cancer treatments, including radiation therapy and chemotherapy, may cause these types of side effects. The best way to treat vomiting is to prevent it with medications called antiemetics.

These guidelines were updated in 2011 to reflect the latest research, and the purpose of this podcast is to summarize these findings.
