This volume in the ""Site-Specific Cancer"" series offers an examination of cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. Cancers of the gastrointestinal tract include those of the esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum, and anus. In many cases, with proper screening, these cancers can be preventable and, when detected and treated at an early stage, curable. The need for education is great, for both oncology nurses and patients with cancer, and this new volume will provide you with the resources you and your patients need to stay informed.Chapters in ""Gastrointestinal Cancers"" include an overview of gastrointestinal cancers; anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal tract; biology, prevention, and screening; esophageal and gastric cancers; colorectal and anal cancers; nursing care of patients with gastrointestinal cancers; symptom management; and evidence-based practice. If you are involved in the treatment and care of patients with gastrointestinal cancers, this is a volume you must have for your nursing library!
