Six Practical Steps.

From diagnosis to management of side effects of prescription drugs

As a researcher, coach, and author I help professionals who work with prescription drugs to improve treatment skills related to adverse events with special attention to immuno-oncology & targeted therapy in cancer.

Since 2006 I teach this approach globally.

I help professionals who work with prescription drugs and their team how to apply The TARGET System in daily practice and achieve better patient outcomes.

I write articles about the different adverse event subtypes and how to approach them systematically. In August 2014 my book The TARGET System was published.

Unleash the potential of prescription drugs,

The Cost of Not Using the TARGET Strategy...

There is nothing more frustrating and killing for your day-to-day practice as struggling with the Not-Taking-Prescription-Drugs-As-Planned to execute your plans. As a Drug Success Master I know exactly how it feels like no one else, and therefore I developed The TARGET System for my own use.


Tell me, how much is it worth to you to miss out on success from untreated adverse events?


The TARGET System Book

Becoming a Drug Success Master in today's challenging health care is not easy but I never gave up on myself to achieve the goals that I had set for my life. This book is one of those goals.

Taking the knowledge I have learnt over the years and putting pen to paper I have written my first book that will give you the insight into my journey to becoming a Drug Success Master and what I had learnt along the way from all the very successful adverse event masters and coaches that I haves been exposed to.

As a result, MORE patients will maintain LONGER on their prescribed drug.

The step-by-step approach is in this book applied on targeted therapy-associated mucocutaneous adverse events, but once you have mastered the 6 steps, you can apply it on any adverse event of any drug. Start your mastering process right away!

From Indecision to Tackled Adverse Events in 6 Steps

The TARGET Strategy

The TARGET Strategy approaches adverse events systematically, taking action, and continue therapy as planned.

It is a step-by-step guide to master adverse events and becoming successful in avoiding unnecessary treatment adjustments.

Christine has published a book about The TARGET Strategy and trains and coaches professionals who work with prescription drugs how to apply the TARGET Steps in day-to-day practice.

#1 - TERM

Using the right diagnosis of the adverse event subtype is the most important step. When you start on the wrong path here, you will not be able to correct it in a later stage.

#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.

#3 - REPORT

Reporting of characteristics of the adverse event subtype tells in detail where to look for an appropriate intervention.

#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.

#5 - EVALUATE

If you are on the right path with your measures or if you are approaching the wrong target will become clear in this step.

#6 - TACKLE

Tackling adverse events becomes the easiest step in adverse event management, when you have applied the previous steps.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

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


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

A  Indeed, not all mucocutaneous adverse events 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 adverse events. Once you get routine in using the system, you can apply it on other mucocutaneous adverse events as well.


Q  You applied the system on mucocutaneous adverse events. Can I apply this system on other kinds of adverse events like nausea and fatigue too?

Yes you can apply The TARGET System on non-mucocutaneous adverse events too. Once you have mastered the strategy on mucocutaneous adverse events you can apply the strategy on all kind of complaints like knee injury for instance too. 


Q  Is it really necessary to buy the book?

A  To become a master in adverse event 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.
