Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celeste Taylor-Ryman, BSN, CPON (University of New Mexico Hospital)
Description: This comprehensive cancer nursing reference covers every aspect of cancer treatment from prevention to late side effects. This edition includes extensive chapters on the newest treatments such as gene therapy, radiation therapies, and advanced practice for oncology nurses.
Purpose: This is an update of a book that has been used and revised over the last 25 years. It continues to be a thorough and substantial source of nursing knowledge.
Audience: Written for the oncology nurse population, the book can be used by bedside nurses, nurse practitioners, or clinic nurses.
Features: The discussion of each type of cancer includes standard treatments, chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, side effects, psychological issues, safety issues, complementary medicine, and spiritual issues. This book thoroughly and clearly explains subjects that are sometimes hard to understand, such as radiation therapy and gene therapy.
Assessment: This book helps cancer nurses understand the totality of what is available for their patients. In elevating nurses' understanding of all aspects of the care of cancer patients, the book enhances their competence and instills confidence. The detailed discussion of complementary therapies is important at a time when studies show that the majority of cancer patients use these therapies. The information on new therapies justifies replacing the older edition.
