Overview

Breast cancer affects 1 in 10 women and the majority of UK women will attend a breast clinic at least once during their lives. The patient's journey through assessment and management is one that involves a huge range of healthcare professionals, in which the truly multidisciplinary management style required has previously been only sparsely addressed. This book provides a practical guide on how to investigate and manage common breast problems for all members of the breast disease team, whether surgeons, nurses, pathologists or support workers. Its focus is on providing easy access to the most up-to-date evidence, allowing healthcare workers to make the best decisions possible and encouraging a team approach to patient support. 26 chapters cover the whole of the patient journey from assessment through to surgery and adjuvant treatments, giving a practical overview of the whole process of care. The coverage guides the reader from clinical examination and investigation of the breast patient to pre-operative workup and post-operative complication guidance. To enable swift and effective decision-making, clear management plans are provided for common breast problems. The book also includes the latest evidence, guidance and references on breast disease, together with discussions on current controversies in the field including the management of margins, management of the axilla and the evidence surrounding the NHS Breast Screening Programme. To give practical advice on the realities of being part of a breast care team, the book also has several chapters devoted to leadership and management including MDT requirements, audit and research, avoiding complaints and the organisation of a breast unit. Enabling every healthcare professional to respond to patients' needs accurately and knowledgeably, Breast Disease Management is a practical guide for the whole team in providing truly patient- centred, effective care.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jesse Lee Dirksen, MD (Edith Sanford Cancer Center)
Description: This is a concise yet complete overview of the entire spectrum of breast disease.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide practical information on breast disease.
Audience: This is an excellent resource for healthcare professionals at all levels. The authors are well-respected breast surgeons.
Features: Topics range from setting up a breast practice all the way through survivorship. A highlight of this book is its discussion of reconstructive techniques. Few books are able to summarize the oncoplastic options available to patients in a way that this book does.
Assessment: This is a worthy effort, providing healthcare providers of all levels a concise yet complete review of the complex subject of breast disease. The manual is broken down into useful sections that provide readers a quick review of all aspects of breast care.
