A Cancer Source Book for Nurses
A Cancer Source Book for Nurses, 8/e, is intended primarily for nurses in every practice setting who are involved with providing care for the more than ten million cancer survivors, individuals with cancer, and those at risk for cancer. The book covers the most common cancers and strategies for nursing care and is an excellent resource for nursing students, nurse generalists, and nurses who find themselves providing care to individuals with cancer but may not consider themselves oncology nurse specialists. Nursing faculty find this text extremely helpful when developing cancer content for undergraduate curricula. Several new chapters have been added, including chapters on sexuality, alternative therapies, vascular access devices, clinical trials, and special populations; other chapters have been revised extensively to reflect current knowledge and trends, and include how to manage symptoms, the latest on cancer prevention and detection; childhood cancers, and survivorship issues. Chapters on the most common cancers include information on incidence, risk factors, early detection, diagnostic evaluation and staging, treatment, prognosis, side effects and long-term sequelae, and nursing considerations.
