This authoritative reference examines in depth the myriad challenges facing pediatric cancer survivors and proposes a robust framework for structured follow-up of these patients through adulthood. Approaches to long-term follow-up include both established models of care and targeted models of lifelong surveillance of late effects by bodily systems and neurological outcomes. Sections devoted to quality of life and re-entry after treatment focus on key concerns such as health risk behaviors, school and career issues, psychological challenges, and care disparities. And a robust resources section adds extra usefulness to the expert coverage. Among the Handbook's topics: • Developmental considerations in the transition from child and adolescent to adult survivorship. • Long-term follow-up roadmaps by disease and treatment. • Neuropsychological effects of pediatric brain tumors and associated treatment. • Building resiliency in childhood cancer survivors: a clinician’s perspective. • School issues and educational strategies for survivors of childhood cancer. • Educating and preparing the childhood cancer survivor for long-term care: a curriculum model for cancer centers. A work of rare scope, scholarship, and clinical acumen, the Handbook of Long-Term Care of the Childhood Cancer Survivor is a rewarding, practice-building resource essential to a wide range of healing professionals, including primary care physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, nurses, psychologists, neuropsychologists, child psychologists, and licensed therapists.

The capacity to understand and communicate health information is a major international health concern. Sponsored by the Health and Biosciences Section of International Federation of Library Associations, this book highlights the contribution that librarians are making to improving health literacy and enabling citizens to be active participants in the management of their own health. Knowledge is power and the World Health Organization recognizes that health literacy, involving effective access to and understanding of health information, is essential to health and well-being in society by empowering and enabling citizens to participate in their own healthcare. The book presents inspiring studies from an international group of authors showing how libraries and librarians are partnering with diverse sectors of society including universities, hospitals, public health clinics, community-based organisations, voluntary bodies and government agencies, to help citizens understand and manage their health. It provides guidance by example to suggest how libraries can help citizens participate in their healthcare and their communities by collaborating with others to increase health literacy in society.

As HIV infection in childhood increases, concomitant with the spread in adult infection, so too is there rapid expansion in our knowledge of the complexities of paediatric infection. Clearly general paediatricians and other members of the multidisciplinary team of carers will increasingly be seeking guidance on management strategies to address a wide range of complex clinical problems. This very practical and concise volume discusses the epidemiology, diagnosis, natural history and care of the HIV infected child. As the book draws upon an international team of contributors, the considerable differences between European treatment strategies and those of North America can be contrasted and evaluated. This guide will be of particular interest to paediatricians, whether in a hospital, specialist unit or community based setting. General practitioners, obstetricians, nurses, counsellors and epidemiologists should also benefit from this book.
