Developed by the American Cancer Society this new textbook designed for a wide range of learners and practitioners comprehensively addresses all aspects of clinical management for cancer taking a balanced, authoritative and, -where possible- evidence-based stance and may be used in conjunction with the book, The American Cancer Society's Principles of Oncology: Prevention to Survivorship.
Edited by leading clinicians in the field and a stellar contributor list from the US and Europe, this book is written in an easy to understand style by multidisciplinary teams of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other specialists, reflecting day-to-day decision-making and clinical practice. Input from pathologists, surgeons, radiologists, and other specialists is included wherever relevant and comprehensive treatment guidelines are provided by expert contributors where there is no standard recognized treatment. This book is an ideal resource for anyone seeking a practical understanding of the field of oncology.
"This is an excellent contribution from an authoritative and well respected professional body in oncology and is a must have for everyone in the field."
-- Ravi Salgia, MD, PhD (City of Hope) Doody's Review
This is a valuable guide for everyone interested/involved in cancer care, especially from a clinical perspective, regardless of whether they are experienced clinicians, interns, fellows or students, or related healthcare providers.
