Colorectal cancer is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in which prevention, screening and early detection are vital. Beginning with the patient perspective and following the patient pathway, this new second edition covers epidemiology and prevention, screening programmes, decision support networks, the role of primary care, and supportive care for patients with colorectal cancer. The ABC of Colorectal Cancer provides the core knowledge on clinical genetics, diagnosis, imaging, therapy and surgery options and the latest evidence based guidelines for treating and managing colorectal cancer patients within the multidisciplinary team. Highly illustrated and accessible, it covers the full spectrum of the disease to provide the basis to make a real difference to clinical management. This is an invaluable practical guide for the non-specialist on all aspects of colorectal cancer, and is ideal for general practitioners, junior doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.

Review quote

This short clinical review book of CRC strikes an excellent balance being both concise but with thorough and up-to-date coverage of the subject matter. The chapters based on their size, layout, and supporting figures are very approachable and I would suspect the book to be very useful to its intended audience of general practitioners and physicians in training. The text would seem to be most useful to those practicing clinical medicine, but could also serve as supplemental reading for those preparing for board-type examinations. (Gastroenterology, 1 August 2012) The information in the ABC of Colorectal Cancer is very well presented and the coverage is more than a GP would need in clinical practice. (Australian Family Physician, 4 April 2012)
