CID is a common side effect of chemotherapy treatment for patients with gastrointestinal cancers, which can result in ED visits, hospital admissions and delays in cancer treatment impacting overall survival. Prior research has explored treatment-related symptoms in older cancer patients and supported the need for patient education strategies to promote symptom management. Patient education tools designed in a stoplight format include three areas with green, yellow and red zones with interventions. The tools have improved management of symptoms and reduced readmissions in chronic diseases. No research studies on oncology patients have been done utilizing a stoplight education tool.
