This guideline provides an approach to the prevention and treatment of anticipatory chemotherapy‐induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) in children. It was developed by an international, inter‐professional panel using AGREE II methods and is based on systematic literature reviews. Evidence‐based recommendations for pharmacological and non‐pharmacological interventions to prevent and treat anticipatory CINV in children receiving antineoplastic agents are provided. Gaps in the evidence used to support the recommendations are identified. The contribution of this guideline to anticipatory CINV control in children requires prospective evaluation.
