Written in an easy-to-read format for use in daily practice, this evidence-based resource delivers the most current, comprehensive clinical guidelines for key pharmaceutical and supportive interventions with patients suffering from cancer. The book is distinguished by its systems-based approach which addresses--from head-to-toe--the symptoms commonly experienced by cancer patients during and after treatment.

Each section of the book offers a comprehensive examination of common cancer symptoms along with clinical guidance on the most effective means of management. Sections cover general symptoms (fatigue, pain, alopecia) as well as those experienced in specific areas including gastrointestinal, genitourinary, pulmonary, neurological, cutaneous, and psychosocial. Chapters within each section consistently address such salient issues as prevalence, contributing factors, assessment, and management, along with a supporting case study and review questions to reinforce information. Textboxes and callouts pinpoint critical information throughout. Ancillaries include an Instructor's PowerPoint slide deck. Purchase includes online access via most mobile devices or computers.
