Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Dee McEvoy, PhD, RN (Mount Sinai Hospital and Medical Center)
Description: This book is a monograph covering a variety of topics related to the care of cancer patients in the community. The major focus is the care of cancer patients in the United Kingdom.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to provide a review of all the aspects of the management of cancer in the U.K. community. Examples of topics include the physiology of cancer. education, oncologic emergencies, psychosocial issues, economic and ethical issues. This 198-page book provides only a broad overview of the topic; the reader is required to seek out additional sources for a comprehensive review.
Audience: The author targets all types of health practitioners involved in cancer care, as well as administrators and fundraisers. Because only a broad overview of the material is provided, specialists will find it lacking.
Features: This is an edited soft-covered text with 14 contributors from the U.K. Although current, the references are very limited in number. Some sections include articles for further reading in addition to references; one section lacks both. Tables and figures are limited The appearance of the book is not enticing; a brief overview shows considerable text in outline form.
Assessment: In summary, this book on cancer care in the community provides a broad overview of the topic. The authors are specialists in their field, but specific to the United Kingdom. Specialists in the field of oncology will find this text of limited usefulness. Those who require only a broad overview of the topic may find it helpful.
