Yet still more complex are the powerful social and cultural forces that shape the delivery of cancer care, and the way in which it experienced. Cancer Nursing: Care in Context addresses this by adopting a unique approach that situates cancer care in the context of society‘s attitudes to the disease, and the broader every-day needs of both patients and their carers. By combining evidenced-based information, a critical view of care and treatment, and ‘first-hand accounts’ of having cancer and caring for people with cancer, the book provides a new perspective how best to deliver the care that patients truly require. This second edition includes new chapters on prevention, diagnosis, symptoms, self-help and self-management, and living with cancer long-term. It also: • Addresses significant changes in cancer care, including expansion of nursing roles, the establishment of cancer networks and cancer collaborative projects • Considers NICE guidance on Supportive and Palliative care • Incorporates material on prevention and early detection • Includes evidence tables based on relevant literature Cancer Nursing: Care in Context is an invaluable resource for all those involved in the provision of cancer care and support to patients and their families.
