Book description

Patients with advanced cancer increasingly receive end-of-life care from a variety of health care professionals, physicians and nurses. These professionals need to be able to assess the original diagnosis and the appropriateness of patient referral, set a treatment or palliation program, and recognise and plan for the clinical problems associated with specific primary tumors. This is the first comprehensive source of information available at a level between specialist oncology texts and nursing texts. Two eminent physicians from one of the world's foremost cancer centers have drawn together a remarkable team to provide a handbook which covers the full range of problems the healthcare workforce caring for these patients will encounter. This highly accessible text covers general principles in oncology, the primary tumors one by one, and management of specific symptoms and syndromes. It will be invaluable to primary care physicians, surgeons, nurses, therapists and trainees.


‘This book does fill in a gap, in recognizing the information needs of the wide range of multidisciplinary health professionals caring for these patients.’

'The purpose of this excellent book is to provide up to date information for the nonspecialist on the treatment of the different cancers and the management of the various symptoms that can arise during treatment … it provides a very useful single source to enable the nonspecialist (GP, practice nurse, general physician/surgeon) to quickly get an overview of an individual cancer … the book is accessible, easy to read and has a comprehensive index. This book fills a large gap in the market and will be of great interest to GPs, General Physicians and Surgeons, Medical Students and both Hospital and Primary Care Nurses, for all of whom it represents very good value for money … will become a well established and successful text.'
