Overview

A comprehensive clinical reference for certified oncology nurses and other nurses who care for cancer patients in a variety of settings. Part I, Principles of Oncology Nursing, includes 17 chapters which provide state-of-the-art understanding of cancer as a disease, its pathophysiology, the therapeutic modalities used to treat it, an overview of the principles of collaborative nursing management of cancer patients along the continuum of care, special considerations in providing physical and psychosocial care to terminally ill patients and their families, and cultural considerations. Part II, Practice of Cancer and Cancer Treatment, provides 59 chapters, each covering the clinical management of a specific type of cancer.

Includes four innovative tables centering around the clinical care of the patient: The Standard of Care tables discuss the characteristics of treatment for a certain type of cancer by addressing problems, symptoms, interventions and rationales and patient education. The Assessment of the Patient tables provide guidelines for the practitioner to chronicle patient history, physical exams and typical diagnostic tests. The Patient Preparation tables help educate the patient about specific procedure they may endure. The Quality of Care tables read like a questionnaire to ensure patient satisfaction with pre- and post-operative treatment. Features many unique, separate chapters: four individual leukemia chapters (The Acute Leukemias, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, and Hairy Cell Leukemia), three specific breast cancer chapters (Breast Cancer In-Situ Disease, Infiltrating Breast Cancer, and Metastatic Breast Cancer), a family issues chapter, and a large pediatrics chapter. Provides an Internet appendix - a quick, easy-to-read reference for Internet research with the name of each organization listed, followed by their Internet address.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stacen Keating, RN, BSN (Mount Sinai Hospital and Medical Center)
Description: This comprehensive textbook for oncology nurses is organized into two parts. Part I contains information on the major principles of cancer treatment (i.e., epidemiology, pathophysiology, oncologic emergencies, etc.). In Part II issues related to specific cancers (i.e., breast, rectal, pancreatic, etc.) are discussed.
Purpose: This book is intended as a reference for oncology nurses. The field of oncology nursing has changed greatly in the last five years. Oncology nurses need a current, comprehensive text so that they can understand a patient's trajectory, provide appropriate interventions, and teach patients and their family members how to manage symptoms and cope with their diseases. I agree with the authors that the scope and practice of oncology nursing has been expanding beyond the hospital setting. Oncology nurses are found in the outpatient as well as the home care settings. A comprehensive reference is needed in order to be able to keep abreast of this demanding and changing specialty. The book met the authors' objectives. Text chapters provide the reader with a thorough discussion of the issues. The special features found in the text on standards of patient care, patient teaching guides, and quality improvement tools are very helpful to the reader.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for oncology nurses and oncology nursing students. I agree with the authors' targeted audiences. This book is specifically written for nurses in order to help them gain an understanding of the disease process, medical management, nursing implications, and teaching needs of patients. Both of the authors of this text are credible authorities on the subject matter presented. Miaskowki has had a wide variety of oncology nursing experience and is currently professor and chair of the Department of Physiologic Nursing at UCSF. Buchsel is recognized as an expert in the nursing care of bone marrow and stem cell transplantation. She is currently a clinical instructor at the University of Washington School of Nursing Education and is an oncology nurse consultant.
Features: The principles of cancer and current treatment modalities are covered in this book. Trends in surgical, radiation, chemotherapy, and biotherapy are written about in detail. In addition nurses are able to review the clinical implications and nursing management of patients undergoing disease specific treatment. The information on patient home care needs and patient teaching guides is very helpful. All aspects of oncology nursing care are covered in this text (including psychosocial, cultural, and terminal care issues). Tables and diagrams are appropriate and useful. One shortcoming of the text of note is that all diagrams appear in black-and-white.
Assessment: This is a very useful and comprehensive reference for oncology nurses. Providing the reader with nursing standards of care and patient teaching information are additional valuable features of this book. This book is well written and compares favorably with other books in the field such as Groenwald's Cancer Nursing: Principles and Practice, 4th Edition (Jones and Bartlett, 1997).
