Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathy K Bannon, ADN, OCN (Union Hospital)
Description: This is an essential resource for oncology nurses. The new edition is justified by the rapid progress taking place in the science and practice of oncology and oncology nursing. The book includes new topics and extensive revision of many chapters from the previous edition. Over 42 experts from multiple areas in the field of oncology have contributed advanced knowledge along with the significant updating of traditional information. The information comprises a priceless source of up-to-date, general knowledge for practitioners in the field of oncology nursing.
Purpose: The authors have met their worthy objective of updating the scientific knowledge base for cancer nursing, particularly as related to gene therapy and cancer. New content has been added on the screening and detection of asymptomatic individuals, hematopoietic therapy, complementary and alternative medicine, cancer-related distress, palliative care, evidenced-based nursing, and legal issues.
Audience: It is written for oncology nurses but would be useful for all who directly or indirectly serve cancer patients and their families, e.g., nursing students, educators, and practitioners in related fields. The authors have appropriate credentials for their respective contributions to this comprehensive text.
Features: The book includes an overview of the cancer problem; prevention, detection, and diagnosis; treatment principles; surgical therapy; radiation therapy; chemotherapy; bone marrow and hematopoietic cell transplantation; biologic and targeted therapy; gene therapy; complementary and alternative therapies; oncologic emergencies; care for specific types of cancers; and professional issues for the cancer nurse. Additional features include extensive references for each topic and a comprehensive index.
Assessment: The book provides a wealth of knowledge for the oncology nurse — particularly the information from the chapters on individual cancers, oncologic emergencies, professional nursing issues, treatment, prevention, and cancer problems. The book is a must have reference for every oncology unit, if not every oncology nurse. The information is comprehensive, up-to-date, pertinent, well-organized, and easy to read — in other words, essential and simply wonderful.
