Product description

The treatment of cancer has undergone dramatic evolutions in the past two decades and the provision of holistic care by a multidisciplinary team of specialists is emerging as the cornerstone of recent improvements in outcome. Accompanying this multidisciplinary approach is the increasing complexity of therapeutic agents and modalities utilized. Drugs in Cancer Care is a succinct, practical and user-friendly guide to commonly used drugs and non-surgical therapeutic modalities in oncology. This detailed yet concise handbook contains over 90 monographs of cancer care providing the information needed to deliver chemotherapy with safety and precision, including information on mechanism of action, clinical pharmacology, side effect profile, tumour indications, combination treatment and how to respond to the hepato-renal impairment seen in many patients with advanced cancer. In an easy to use A-Z format this handbook will appeal to a variety of healthcare professional involved in the provision of cancer care and medicine information and will become an essential and well-thumbed item in every oncologist's toolkit.
