Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Karen McGinnis, RN, MSN (Mount Sinai Hospital and Medical Center)
Description: This pocket-size reference book is a general clinical reference guide for nurses caring for individuals with cancer. It is the companion guide for Groenwald's Cancer Nursing: Principles and Practices (3rd ed.).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick and easy-to-use resource for nurses caring for individuals with cancer in various clinical settings. The book used as a clinical guide in collaboration with the textbook by the same authors meets its overall objective.
Audience: This clinical guide is intended for nurses caring for individuals with cancer in various clinical settings (hospital, ambulatory care, rehabilitation, home care, and hospice care). The four editors and the 65 authors (of chapters in the textbook edition) are credible in their respective areas in oncology nursing.
Features: This portable guide book, identical in color and design to the textbook, has suggested readings at the end of each chapter to guide the reader to more comprehensive information.
Assessment: This is a very useful clinical reference guide for nurses caring for individuals with cancer in various clinical settings. It covers the scope of cancer nursing from epidemiology to current professional issues. Nurses from beginner to the expert in oncology will benefit by carrying their own pocket-size reference guide that covers the scope of cancer nursing.
