About this book

This volume presents the MD Anderson experience in providing care and services to the rapidly growing population of cancer survivors, which is currently estimated to be 12 million in the United States and more than 25 million worldwide. As cancer survival rates have increased, it has slowly become clear that the challenges faced by people with cancer do not end with treatment but simply change. This book aims to assist community oncologists, physicians, and their staff, who care for the vast majority of cancer survivors, by disseminating models of surveillance for disease recurrence, screening for second primary cancers, education regarding potential late effects of treatment, and psychosocial counseling. These models have proven valuable to cancer survivors who receive care at MD Anderson.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book is written for community oncologists, primary care providers, and medical staff involved in the care of cancer survivors. … The information is accurate, concise, and well reported, and it espouses comprehensive care including integrative medicine and preventive medicine. … It is also very useful for the instruction of training residents and fellows in family practice, internal medicine, and emergency medicine. Pediatric and adult oncologists in training could benefit from this review as well.” (Linda Jane Butros, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2015)
