ABC of Cancer Care
by Carlo Palmieri, Richard Simcock, Esther Bird
Paperback Book (102 Pages)
August 2013
Cancer care is multidisciplinary, and takes place in both primary and secondary care. There is a need for a book to provide coverage of the diagnosis, management, treatment and ongoing surveillance of common cancers within the multidisciplinary context of primary care.
Each year there are around 12.7 million new cancer cases worldwide each year. The most common cancers are breast, lung, bowel and prostate.
The ABC of Cancer Care will give the reader a solid basis of understanding of the common modalities of cancer care, indications, benefits and common toxicities. Readers will be able to inform their patient, manage and recognize the common complications of the disease and its treatment, as well as understand the rationale and implications of treatments initiated in secondary and tertiary care.
• A new addition to the popular, reader-friendly, full colour ABC series.
• Gives a solid basis for the understanding of the common modalities of cancer care, indications and toxicities.
• Highly illustrated in full colour.
• Written by a multidisciplinary contributor team.
