Of particular note in 2016 was

Just Bag

It

: NCCN Campaign for Safe Handling of

Vincristine. A public awareness campaign

launched with a press conference in

November 2016,

Just Bag It

intends to

raise awareness of guidelines issued by

NCCN and the NCCN Best Practices

Committee to change the standard

method of administering vincristine

to eliminate the possibility of a lethal

medical error. In 2016, all NCCN

Member Institutions had changed their

administration practices for the drug, and

NCCN is calling for all cancer centers to

make the switch.

Just Bag It

gained recognition at national

and local levels and has raised awareness

in additional number of hospitals who

reported that they have changed their

vincristine administration practices.

More information about the

Just Bag It

campaign and a list of facilities who have

reported a change to their vincristine

administration practices are available at
