As an oncology nurse, every day you see patients who experience multiple symptoms, some related to cancer, some related to treatment, others non-cancer related. To effectively treat what you might find at the bedside, you need information based on the highest-level evidence focused on responses to any number of symptoms. "A Guide to Oncology Symptom Management" provides you with the coverage of symptoms and conditions that you need. From symptoms found in older adults to common symptoms such as chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, cancer-related fatigue, and oral mucositis, this new book offers a complete overview of common symptoms and problems that affect patients with cancer. You'll find in each chapter detailed incidence and prevalence information as well as an explanation of the pathophysiology related to the topic. Each chapter also includes a case study and appropriate evidence-based assessment and treatment strategies. Finally, outcomes to be expected from optimal management are clearly delineated. Symptoms discussed in chapters include anemia, cognitive impairment, constipation, sleep-wake disturbances, and much more.
