This ground-breaking clinical reference provides a comprehensive perspective of the multiple issues facing cancer survivors, ranging from early post-treatment through long-term care. Clear, clinically practical chapters written by experts in the field concentrate on multi-dimensional issues that confront cancer survivors. Divided into four, focused sections—overview of survivorship, medical care, psychosocial care, and epidemiologic—this book is evidence-based and uses case examples and illustrations throughout to add to the understanding of the material and its application to the individual patient. Primary care physicians, nurses, oncologists, hematologists, students of medicine, and survivorship researchers will all find this to be a valuable asset in setting the standard of care in the field of cancer survivorship.
