    When you apply the 6 steps of The Target System on a side effect:
    • Cancer treatments will lead to less symptom burden.
    • You will be able to select appropriate measures that are actually effective for a particular side effect sub-type. 
    • Less dose adjustments or modification of cancer therapy than before are needed.

When you choose not to apply the six steps of The Target System on a side effect:

  1. Side effects will become severe and sustaining
  2. Patients will be taken off their lifesaving or life-sustaining drug
  3. This may lead to decreased outcome.

Results don’t happen on accident.
Structure gives you results.

About the Author

When targeted therapies were first introduced, the general opinion was that they were going to be easy-to-use drugs with a favorable safety profile. Discussions at conferences and meetings suggested that if any side-effects occurred they were likely to be mild.

So I really believed that these new therapies would be an ideal, simple solution for my patients and was very pleased when we were able to treat our first patient with a targeted therapy.

Following the introduction of these agents adverse events became identified. The first drug reactions - papules, pustules, dry skin, itchiness, fissures, and trichomegaly were noted. To be honest I felt distraught because I simply didn’t know how to treat these side-effects! I couldn’t help my patients at all in the way I would have wanted to.

I had been led to believe - and had told my patients in turn - that targeted therapies were considered to be very well-tolerated. So I really felt I had let them down and I thought that the best way to make amends would be to look for solutions to their hurdles. 

And I did. 

This book is the result of years of research - including trial and error addressing the mucocutaneous side effects associated with targeted anticancer therapies.

By following the six steps of the TARGET System you will be able to limit side effects of targeted therapies and promote compliance with the needed cancer therapy - avoiding unnecessary discontinuation or dose adjustments.

Managing side effects is easy, if you know how!

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: The book is about several mucocutaneous side effects, but not all of them are discussed. Why didn’t you incorporate more mucocutaneous side effects?

Answer: Indeed, not all mucocutaneous side effects are specifically reviewed because new side effects are being identified and studied on an ongoing basis. The book isn’t meant to be complete. As systematic approach is presented for several common mucocutaneous side effects. Once you get routine in using the system, you can apply it on other mucocutaneous side effects as well.

Question: You applied the system on mucocutaneous side effects. Can I apply this system on other kinds of side effects like nausea and fatigue too?

Answer: Yes, you can apply The TARGET System on non-mucocutaneous side effects too. Once you have mastered the strategy on mucocutaneous side effects you can apply the strategy on all kind of complaints like knee injury for instance too. 

Question: Is it necessary to buy the book?

Answer: To become a master in side effect management, it is necessary to practice. I found this to be a long learning curve because no detailed information and no system in this area was available. To be able to learn faster in a shorter time span, the practical book may support you.

Question: My company works with Purchase Order (PO) Numbers to authorize a purchase transaction. How will this work?

Answer: Many companies work with PO numbers. Simply order your purchase online. Once you’ve received your PO number, email the PO number to and we will send you a duplicated invoice with the PO number added.
