The ototoxicity monitoring program (OMP) currently in place at the OSUWMC James Cancer Hospital (James) was evaluated and barriers and facilitators to general OMP goals were determined. Barriers to meeting OMP goals at the James include inconsistent referrals, lack of on-site audiology services, and reduced patient compliance. Facilitators in meeting OMP goals include provider buy-in, on-site and portable audiology services, designated OMP staff, and a unified patient tracking and scheduling mechanism.
