THE 6 PRACTICAL STEPS:
Step 1: Term: Institute adverse event subtypes.
Step 2: Assess: Assessing signs and symptoms of the adverse event and the impact of an adverse event for a particular patient is crucial to identify the intervention direction.
Step 3: Report: Reporting of characteristics of the adverse event subtype tells in detail where to look for an appropriate intervention.
Step 4: Grade: There are much better grading tools available than the CTCAE which will guide you to the best treatment option for a particular adverse event subtype.
Step 5: Evaluate: If you are on the right path with your measures or if you are approaching the wrong target will become clear in the 5th step.
Step 5: Treat: Tackling adverse events becomes the easiest step in adverse event management, when you have applied the previous steps.
