Summary : Three of every four children and adolescents with cancer can now be cured. However, physicians are using increasingly intensive treatment regimens. These treatments can expose patients to toxic chemotherapeutic agents, invasive surgical procedures, and radiation oncology interventions that risk disfigurement, neuropsychiatric damage, and life-threatening organ toxicity. These potentially dire consequences have mandated that advances in cancer treatment go hand in hand with supportive care measures that sustain patients through their therapeutic ordeal and allow each patient to achieve maximum quality of life. In this book, now in its third edition, the discipline of supportive care in pediatric oncology is covered in depth. Supportive Care of Children with Cancer is a ready-reference handbook designed for use at the hospital bedside, in the oncology outpatient clinic, or in the physician's office. To create this book, leading experts in the field recommended approaches to supportive care which were then critically reviewed by members of the Children's Oncology Group, the world's largest cooperative study group for children's cancer. For students, house officers, fellows, pediatric oncologists, surgeons, nurses, nutritionists, social workers, and psychologists, this book provides essential information about the care of pediatric oncology patients. The third edition features a new chapter on recognition, prevention, and remediation of burnout in pediatric oncology staff members, while throughout the book, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect the impact of new antibiotic agents, new antiemetics, and new approaches to pain management.

Summary : More and more people living with and beyond cancer seek integrative interventions to complement their conventional cancer care. This second edition of the highly successful Integrative Oncology provides the reader with the most updated information available with new chapters on Music and Expressive Arts Therapies, Naturopathic Oncology, and an integrative approach to Lung Cancer. Integrative medicine is defined as healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) as well as all aspects of lifestyle; it emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative. This series grows out of a need to organize and make accessible to clinicians the basic principles of integrative medicine in practical application to common health conditions. Each volume focuses on a particular specialty and features well-recognized and authoritative editors and chapter authors. The text is presented in an easy-to-read format featuring case histories, clinical pearls, and useful tables, with all key information highlighted. Series editor Andrew Weil, MD, is Professor and Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. Dr. Weil's program was the first such academic program in the U.S., and its stated goal is "to combine the best ideas and practices of conventional and alternative medicine into cost effective treatments without embracing alternative practices uncritically."

Additionally, MASCC Textbook of Cancer Supportive Care and Survivorship, 2nd edition assembles international, multidisciplinary experts who focus on a comprehensive range of symptoms and side effects associated with cancer and its treatment. Over the last five years, much progress has been made in supportive care, helping people cope with the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment and addressing the physical and psychosocial matters of survivorship prior to, during, and after anticancer treatment. This is central to a patient’s wellbeing and the MASCC Textbook of Cancer Supportive Care and Survivorship, 2nd edition, explores not only the diagnosis and treatment, but also the increasingly recognized complex and ongoing symptoms experienced by long term cancer survivors. Significant advances have been made, designing strategies to manage the side effects and symptoms of treatment and to prevent them from occurring, maximizing the person’s ability to pursue daily activities. Reviews of the 1st edition: “This book reviews the management of cancer symptoms in patients and the side effects and late effects of treatment. The focus of the book is on supportive care and survivorship of cancer patients...The book covers symptomatology, medication and treatment, and system function of patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy...Photographs and algorithm charts further illustrate key points. This outstanding book is thorough in its explanations and easy to follow.” (Arlenda C. Thompson, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2011)

The book is aimed at trainees and practitioners who seek an up-to-date text in pediatric neuro-oncology that is both comprehensive and concise.

Summary : Respiratory symptoms such as breathlessness and cough are common in patients with advancing and incurable disease. For example, cancer, chronic cardiac and pulmonary disease, progressive neuromuscular disorders and degenerative disorders all give rise to varying degrees of respiratory distress which adversely affects the patient's quality of life. In recent years, there has been significant growth into the palliation of respiratory symptoms leading to practical ways of giving relief in hospices, hospitals and at home. The book includes non-malignant respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis in AIDS patients; ventilator-dependent patients and cystic fibrosis and focuses on aetiology and diagnosis and management, emphasizing symptoms, quality of life and psychosocial support. The underlying theme of the book is the application of modern research-based knowledge, in a humane way, for patients with advancing disease. Aimed primarily at specialists in palliative care, oncology and respiratory physicians; doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and pharmacists will also be interested. The book will appeal to those working in 'acute' specialties such as cardiology or pulmonary medicine, whose patients are not usually considered for palliative care, but in whom relief of distressing respiratory problems could improve the quality of life.
