More on Identifying Side Effects

Yesterday, I blogged about how hard it can be for patients with co-morbidities to accurately report on side effects.Imuch appreciate the suggestions and ideas I got in response.

Here are some more ways to think about solving this problem:

Keeping a journal over time

Developing a neurological scan that shows nerve responses in real time

Developing brain scans and algorithms to identify side effect-related brain activity

Using medical staff with co-morbidities to do the side effects interviews

Asking families what patterns they are seeing

Including sensitivity to these issues in medical training and rounding

More suggestions and comments always welcome
