A team of expert authors from the medical and allied health communities describe recent advances in the management of head and neck cancer through a greater understanding of cancer cell growth and mechanisms, as well as the expansion of rehabilitation strategies across the allied health profession. /In addition to introducing new information, the book covers both the theoretical and clinical knowledge from an international perspective to support basic training of therapists in practice as well as graduate students, all illuminated with case examples - from swallowing disorders, through non-surgical voice restoration, to rehabilitation following total laryngeal surgery - on an accompanying CD-ROM. /As the first book in recent years to cover both current theory and clinical practice, this will prove an essential textbook and practical clinical reference for the H&N cancer rehabilitation team.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cory L Atkinson, BM (voice), MA, CCC-SLP(Northwestern University)
Description: This is a practical guide, both for reference and instruction, to comprehensive care for patients with head and neck cancer.
Purpose: The book aims to educate team members on the most current trends in the treatment and rehabilitation of head and neck cancer, always mindful of the goal of optimizing quality of life outcome. It is a unique contribution on this topic, and well realized through text, illustrations, and the accompanying CD-ROM.
Audience: This guide could be useful for students of speech pathology as well as practicing SLP clinicians looking to expand their knowledge about working with this patient population.
Features: All the multidisciplinary topics surrounding head and neck cancer (HNCA) treatment and rehabilitation are covered. These range from the biology and physiology of HNCA, current surgical and nonsurgical management approaches, and comprehensive rehabilitation techniques for swallowing and speech, as well as more traditionally unfamiliar areas of olfaction and pulmonary function. The accompanying CD-ROM nicely complements the text and illustrations with audio, video, and MBS/FEES examples.
Assessment: This is the first book I have seen that is geared primarily to speech pathologists devoted specifically to this population.
