Description

Written especially for nurses caring for patients with cancer, this book uniquely expresses drug therapy in terms of the nursing process: nursing diagnoses, etiologies of toxicities, and key points for nursing assessment, intervention, and evaluation. Updated annually, this essential reference provides valuable information on effective symptom management, patient education, and chemotherapy administration.

Completely revised and updated, it includes separate chapters on molecular and immunologic/biologic targeted therapies. These chapters provide fundamental reviews to assist nurses in understanding the cellular communication pathways disrupted by cancer. It also offers simplified content, attention to understanding the immune checkpoint inhibitors, new information about immunotherapy, new drugs and their indications, and updated indications and side effects for recently FDA approved drugs.

New drugs include: avelumab (Bavencio), brigatinib (Alunbrig), durvalumab (Imfinzi), enasidenib (Idhifa), metronidazole hydrochloride (Flagyl), midostaurin (Rydapt), neratinib (Nerlynx), niraparib (Zejula), olaratumab (Lartruvo), ribociclib (Kisqali), rituximab and hyaluronidase human injection (Rituxan Hycela injection), rucaparib (Rubraca), telotristat ethyl (Xermelo), and tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah).
