About this book

Late Effects of Treatment for Brain Tumors reviews the development of the medical team's awareness of late effects with an overview of brain tumor survivorship.  It reviews  by topic and by organ system, educates, and provides guidelines for follow up and interventions for survivorship.  Advocacy for survivors and models for the importance of coordinated late effects programs are also discussed.

"Advances in cancer therapy have resulted in a dramatic increase in long term survival for patients with a spectrum of cancers. For this reason treatment complications and risk for second malignancies have become critical issues for many individuals. In this text, leading investigators in the field address current knowledge and future research initiatives associated with cancer survivorship."

Steven T. Rosen, M.D.

From the reviews:

"This book summarizes the current knowledge of the late effects of brain malignancies. … The intended audience includes physicians, nurses, psychologists, and other health professionals who care for CNS tumor survivors. … it is easy to follow and understand. The authors are all leaders in the field. … this book should be on the shelves of both medical and consumer libraries." (Joseph I. Sirven, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2009)
