Summary

This easy-to-use reference provides nurses with practical material that is useful in the day-to-day care of patients with colorectal cancer. Divided into five sections, the text covers: the basics of colorectal cancer; disease assessment; therapeutic approaches and nursing care; treatment of recurrent and metastatic colorectal cancer; and care of the individual with colorectal cancer. Quality of life, advanced symptom management, and survivorship are also explored and offer insight into the colorectal cancer experience.
