Nurses are in the vanguard of the international fight against cancer. National policies on reducing or eradicating cancer highlight the vital contribution nurses make in its prevention, identification, treatment and management. This book, which is based on the internationally acclaimed Core Curriculum for a Post-Registration Course in Cancer Nursing developed by the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS), covers all the key areas nurses caring for patients in this demanding specialty will need to consider. Focusing on the needs of the patient, it provides the essential scientific, psychological and sociological information necessary for nurses to provide care that minimises the trauma of cancer, and maximises outcomes for patients and their families.
This book is educational for nurses of all levels wishing to expand their cancer knowledge. It will be a welcome addition to any cancer unit and nursing library.Ros Bratt-Wyton, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Haemato-Oncology, Dudley Group of HospitalsRCN Cancer Nursing Practice, June 2006
