"This edition would seem to be useful to a wide range of health staff working with patients affected by cancer … .Well referenced throughout and contains a helpful glossary." (Journal of Community Nursing, January 2009)
Advances in research and the treatment of cancer mean that more patients and their carers are asking healthcare professionals about the latest treatments and how they may be of benefit. It is essential that staff working with cancer patients understand fully how these new treatments work in order to disseminate timely and appropriate information to patients.
The application of biology to the delivery of cancer care is playing an ever-increasing role in the management of these diseases. The Biology of Cancer: Second Edition provides details of the most recent developments in cancer care and is divided into three sections:
Understanding Cancer – examines predisposing factors to developing cancer, diagnosis and its implications on the individual and society.
The Science of Cancer – a closer look at the cell, genetics, the immune system, tumour markers and monoclonal antibodies.
Research and Treatment – exploring translational oncology, applying research methodology to cancer research and research ethics relating to cancer.
This fully updated edition also looks at evidence-based research that can be translated directly to patient care and gives details recent developments. Written by experienced, practicing healthcare professionals, The Biology of Cancer: Second Edition can easily be applied to patient care. It is an informative text for students, newly qualified nurses and practising oncology/palliative care nurses.
