About this book

This book serves to educate and train primary care clinicians to provide high quality care to patients across the cancer care continuum. This guide is divided into six main chapters that follow the trajectory of cancer care: prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship care, and palliative/end-of-life care. Its succinct style, bullet points, tables and figures allow busy clinicians to both develop an overview of the core competencies involved in cancer care and quickly refer to the text in the process of caring for patients. Written by primary care physicians with expertise in cancer care, each chapter covers current recommendations and includes key points for select populations, considerations for the role of team based care, and resources for further learning. This is an ideal resource for primary care clinicians caring for patients along the cancer care continuum.
