This textbook covers management of the symptoms of cancer and side effects from cancer treatment. The symptoms discussed range from general symptoms to organ specific symptoms and cover all stages of cancer from presenting symptoms of the cancer to symptoms that arise in the terminal phase of the illness which require palliation or symptoms and late effects of treatment which persist post treatment into the survivorship phase. The authors will discuss the management of symptoms which apply to both adults and children.The authors are members of MASCC a multidisciplinary international organisation whose focus is supportive care and whose membership includes many of the world leaders in these fields. The organisation regularly publishes guidelines in a range of cancers in order to encourage evidence based practice.The target audience is the health professional who manage cancer. This includes those that form the primary specialties: surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, palliative care and rehabilitation medicine, as well as from allied disciplines of psychology, social work, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and pharmacy, specialist and general nurses. General practitioners who manage many of the symptoms and side effects after treatment will find it a useful reference. The handbook is a helpful resource for medical and allied health students. Finally with the increasing sophistication of consumers, some will benefit from the greater detail provided in this book if they wish to research beyond traditional resources for patients and carers.
