Summary This edition is intended for nurses in every practice setting who are involved with providing care to individuals with cancer, those at risk for cancer, and survivors of cancer. The book covers the most common cancers and strategies for nursing care and is an excellent resource for nursing students, nurses who find themselves providing care to individuals with cancer but may not consider themselves oncology nurse specialists, and other health professionals who have an interest in oncology care. Nursing faculty find this text helpful when developing oncology content for undergraduate courses.
