About this book

This is the second edition of a comprehensive clinical handbook for nurses in pediatric hematology/oncology that presents in-depth information on pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, advanced assessment, and interventions.  All chapters have been updated since the first edition, and additional chapters have been included where necessary. 

The book is divided into five sections: pediatric cancers, hematologic disorders, treatment of childhood cancer, side-effects of treatment and disease, and supportive and palliative care. It is organized in a consistent and accessible format with quick reference guides that will prove invaluable in everyday practice.  Future perspectives and opportunities for new treatment options and research are also presented. All of the authors are pediatric experts from the United Kingdom and North America, and their contributions reflect their diverse backgrounds and experiences.  This handbook will provide an indispensable tool for those responsible for the clinical nursing care of children with cancer, and assist in meeting the many challenging developments in this specialty.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition: “This book describes and discusses childhood cancers in detail appropriate for advanced level practitioners. … this book also is an excellent reference for general nursing practitioners wishing to expand the breadth of their knowledge in pediatric hematology and oncology. … Each chapter uses a consistent format, making the book easy to reference. … The art used throughout is colorful and relevant. This is an excellent book that will be useful for advanced practice nurses as well as general practitioners wishing to expand their knowledge base.” (Theresa M. Bacon, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2010) “Pediatric Oncology Nursing: Advanced Clinical Handbook is the resource every advanced practice hematology/oncology nurse, whether nurse practitioner or clinical specialist, should own. It delivers a thorough, well-organized, succinct discussion of childhood cancers and hematologic disorders. … The detailed table of contents facilitates quick and easy location of whatever condition or aspect of that condition is desired. … The economy of words increases the book’s worth to the busy practitioner.” (Sandra R. Mott, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (15), 2010)
