Overview

This book is composed of 13 informative chapters written by world-renowned healthcare providers and researchers in the fields of endocrinology, pharmacy, radiology, infertility, pediatrics, internal medicine, psychology and genetics. From topics covering psychosocial impacts to pharmacokinetic and homecare resources, the intent of this book is to provide guiding principles for a safe and informative transition of care for pediatric and adolescent patients with various familial endocrine cancer syndromes that are transitioning from pediatric to adult health care. It provides an in-depth exploration of the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, survivorship navigation intervention, patient, caregiver and primary care provider challenges, and multidisciplinary care plans for conditions such as MEN1, MEN2 and other familial and genetic endocrine neoplasias.

Familial Endocrine Cancer Syndromes: Navigating the Transition of Care for Pediatric and Adolescent Patients is a much-needed resource, as the literature currently lacks a comprehensive publication to facilitate pediatric patients’ transition to adult clinics and resources following endocrine cancer diagnosis and treatment.
