Completely revised and updated, the 2010 Oncology Nursing Drug Handbook includes:

New and updated administered drugs.
Specific drugs are described in terms of their mechanism of action, metabolism, drug interactions, laboratory effects/interference, and special considerations.
The most important and common drug side effects are discussed.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celeste Taylor-Ryman, BSN, CPON (University of New Mexico Hospital)
Description: This comprehensive drug handbook incorporates all aspects of oncology drugs, including anatomy, physiology, chemistry, clinical drug trials, and nursing diagnosis, with up-to- date references. The format is excellent for understanding drugs, therapies, side effects, and pathophysiology.
Purpose: The purpose is to assist nurses in the pharmacological management of patients with cancer, and all of the related issues, with the goal of fostering their long-term survival. The authors have produced an outstanding resource of well-researched and intelligently presented information.
Audience: Although written primarily for nurses, pharmacists and physicians will find some aspects of this book valuable.
Features: The book is divided into three areas related to oncologic drug usage — treatment, management, and complications - and comprehensively deals with each area for each drug. Non-chemotherapy drugs such as antibiotics and others are also discussed. The authors employ a variety of innovative methods in the book, including using nursing diagnoses to explain side effects and treatment and listing uses of the drugs with different cancers in a very instructive way. Pathophysiology is incorporated in a clear and easy to understand manner, almost like a textbook.
Assessment: This is the highest quality nursing drug book I have seen and it should be a model for others. It includes an extensive section on safety issues and guidelines for the handling of chemotherapy. I appreciate the fact that I also can use it as a reference for non-chemotherapy drugs. This is a state-of-the-art representation of the nursing perspective on oncologic drugs and related care.
