Care of the Cancer Patient: A Quick Reference Guide by Wesley Finegan & Angela McGurk

This work includes a foreword by Elizabeth Rogerson. Head of Education and Development, International Virtual Nursing School Head, Distance Learning Centre (Nursing and Palliative Care), University of Dundee. It considers all the patient's symptoms and all the information available to us, then assesses the symptoms, signs and information given, using this to choose the appropriate remedies for the problem, and extra information will be offered where available and appropriate. This easy to use, evidence-based guide offers practical resources for every day use. Well laid out, with a simple alphabetical format, "Care of the Cancer Patient" covers the management of common problems, contains basic explanations of pathophysiology and relevant pharmacology, and includes vital guidance on new treatments and scientific papers. It is ideal for non-specialist doctors, nurses, carers and other health professionals who look after patients with cancer-related symptoms. 'This book recognises the complexity inherent in the cancer journey and places a spotlight on the human face of health care management, specifically on the ability to provide careful, individualised and sensitive management of symptom control that aims to make a difference to the patient's quality of life. It is written in a manner that is acceptable to professionals, patients and carers alike. This book adopts a unique approach to symptom management in palliative care, inviting the practitioner to consider the possible causes of the symptom, and then assess the patient with these in mind. Paying attention to the pathophysiology of the symptom and respecting the individual needs of the patient, one is guided to make a logical choice of treatment by thinking about the pharmacological actions of the available drugs. This is a book to be on the desk ready for quick reference, not stored on a shelf in a library.' - Elizabeth Rogerson, in the Foreword.
