Description

In recent years, there has been considerable progress in our understanding of the treatment and diagnosis of cancer, leading to the development and availability of an increasing array of novel therapies. Concurrently, there has also been an increase in understanding and insight gained into effective management strategies in cancer supportive care which have enabled oncologists to reduce the adverse impact of cancer and its treatment. However, challenges, controversies and educational gaps remain. This concise yet comprehensive pocket guide provides oncologists and other healthcare professionals with essential, evidence-based guidance on the all major elements related to cancer supportive care, including pain management and end-of-life care. Edited by a world renowned oncologist, this volume outlines complex management issues common in cancer supportive care, including metabolic emergencies, febrile neutropenia, and spinal cord compression.
