Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert David Rice, RN, MSN, NP-C(Mount Sinai Hospital and Medical Center)
Description: A multitude of symptoms, physical and emotional responses, and side effects confront the patient as a result of the cancer diagnosis and its treatment and management. The editors have assembled an outstanding text to address a preponderance of these symptoms and the management of symptoms by both the patient and the nurse.
Purpose: This text provides oncology nurses with both information and work tools to help evaluate and appropriately treat patients with cancer. It is also intended to provide information on symptoms and self-care guides to patients and their families/caregivers.
Audience: The audience would directly include oncology nurses, advanced practice nurses, and student nurses. It would indirectly include patients and families/caregivers experiencing symptoms related to their diagnosis of cancer and its treatment.
Features: There are 33 chapters in which extensive coverage of physical and emotional disturbances/alterations in the areas of life experience and quality of life are provided — comfort, nutrition, protective mechanisms, fluid and electrolyte balance, elimination, and coping. Individual chapters cover etiology, pathophysiology, assessment, and symptom management. Each problem is followed by one or more self care guides to assist the patient/family in symptom management at home. The editors encourage the reader to adapt these self-care guidelines to their individual practices.
Assessment: In this text the editors provide useful, extremely accessible information on routinely encountered problems, and assist in understanding the problems in context of the patient's quality of life and own personal life meaning, and illustrate concrete means to apply problem-solving to improve the symptoms and, consequently, the patient's quality of life. The self-care tools are excellent, "patient friendly," and can be easily adapted to any practice setting. While varying degrees of this information are found in all cancer nursing texts, it is useful to have a concise compendium of cancer symptom management at the ready disposal of the cancer nurse. This is a second edition. The editors have updated the wealth of information in the area of symptom management, the application to practice, and the respective references.

Booknews
Provides clinical oncology nurses with the information and tools needed to help individuals and families face the daily problems that arise with cancer and its treatment. Following general chapters on the symptom experience, the measurement of symptom distress, and the importance of self-care, chapters discuss the evaluation and treatment of symptoms, including: disturbances of comfort, nutrition, protective mechanisms, and elimination, and alterations in fluid and electrolyte balance and alterations of coping. A new chapter describes ways in which the nurse can help patients begin thinking about end of life issues. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
