Written especially for nurses caring for patients with cancer, the 2020-2021 Oncology Nursing Drug Handbook uniquely expresses drug therapy in terms of the nursing process: nursing diagnoses, etiologies of toxicities, and key points for nursing assessment, intervention, and evaluation. Updated annually, this essential reference provides valuable information on effective symptom management, patient education, and chemotherapy administration. Completely revised and updated, the 2018 Oncology Nursing Drug Handbook includes separate chapters on molecular and immunologic/biologic targeted therapies. These chapters provide fundamental reviews to assist nurses in understanding the cellular communication pathways disrupted by cancer. It also offers simplified content, attention to understanding the immune checkpoint inhibitors, new information about immunotherapy, new drugs and their indications, and updated indications and side effects for recently FDA approved drugs.

"The world of cancer treatment is changing almost daily. In 2018 alone, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved 19 new cancer drug treatments, and many more promising drugs are on the horizon. New therapies include targeted therapies, immunotherapy, drugs associated with cancer genetics, and nanotechnology. A developing treatment is CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) T-cell therapy, which includes the administration of new immunotherapy drugs used for adult patients with certain types of lymphoma and for children and young adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Virtually every single chemotherapy drug comes with its own long list of symptoms, which are only confounded when more than one agent is used in a cancer regimen. Oncology nurses are almost always the providers who intervene when patients experience one or many symptoms; thus, these professionals must remain knowledgeable about the effects of all antineoplastic agents in use. Many of the newer medications have associated symptoms such as skin alterations and intense flu-like symptoms that, until recently, were not the usual mainstay. This handbook was written by a collection of expert oncology professionals to address every facet of antineoplastic therapy, from understanding biomarkers that influence treatment decisions, navigating cost and reimbursement issues, to supporting patients and their families throughout their treatment trajectory and survivorship. A team of nurses, pharmacists, advanced practice providers, social workers, and physicians have contributed to this text and reflects the collaborative nature of the delivery of care to patients. Chapters examine antineoplastic agent use and monitoring, from conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy to clinical trials and survivorship, and include detailed drug monographs for quick access to information. New perspectives and topics, such as biosimilars, help providers appreciate the nuances of the expanding categories of antineoplastic agent use. The approach of including scientific, operational, and psychosocial information across topics ensures the reader gains global information to ideally expand knowledge, increase curiosity, and aid in delivering exceptional care. Similarly, holistic topics, including support services, patient navigation, access devices, and legal concerns provide, a well-rounded approach to subject matter relevant to all disciplines involved in care. This edition of A Chemotherapy Handbook is a key resource for everyone from newly minted practitioners to seasoned veterans involved in oncology patient management"--

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)
