Explore the Fundamentals of Cancer and Its Care With This Expanded and Updated Text!

Since the publication of the first edition, Cancer Basics has provided thousands of nurses and non-nursing professionals working in oncology with a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to the key concepts associated with the care of patients with cancer. This expanded second edition continues the focus on the fundamentals of cancer and its treatment and incorporates current state of the knowledge to better address the specialized content needs of nurses caring for patients with cancer across all settings. Sections explore the biology, genetics, epidemiology, and staging of cancer; treatment options; symptom management; and survivor and caregiver issues.

New to this edition are key points to highlight the essential takeaways from each chapter as well as study questions and answers with the rationale for each, making this text a useful resource for both staff education and certification preparation. Chapters on fatigue and palliative care have also been added, and cardiac and pulmonary toxicity content has been expanded into separate chapters.

Cancer Basics is essential reading for nurses new to oncology and any professional looking to gain foundational knowledge of this complex group of diseases.
