This excellent research based textbook addresses nursing care issues rather than disease processes and therefore looks at issues such as discharge planning, adolescents and cancer, coping strategies for family and staff. It concentrates on the psychological and social aspects of care and reflects the radical changes that have occurred in recent years in thisfield. These include better survival rates in childhood cancer, advanced therapies, the move to community based care and increasing awareness of the long term effects of treatment.All post-graduate nurses working with children with cancer, whether in a community or hospital setting will find this text invaluable. It will equally benefit post-graduate nurses studying professional and academic specialist courses such as the ENB 240 paediatric oncology course or those who are already qualified paediatric oncology nurses but who need to keep themselves updated or need a reference in this area.

Key Features

  • Expert contributors and editor in this field who will provide up-to- date and relevant analysis of the subject.
  • Emphasises the partnership between nurse, child and family.
  • Discusses the impact of treatment on the nursing team. This is an important chapter as there is a lack of knowledge regarding the emotional cost of caring for children with cancer.
  • Companion Products
