About this book


This book is intended as the equivalent of the Swiss Army knife for all members of colorectal cancer (CRC) multidisciplinary teams and those training in the fields of CRC management. It describes how to organize the team and explains the basic principles within the different disciplines involved in the treatment and care of CRC patients. Important, up-to-date knowledge is provided on visualization techniques, surgery, oncological treatment, palliation, and pathology, with special focus on controversies and aspects of interest to all team members. Care has been taken to ensure that each specialty-specific chapter will be approachable for team members from other specialties or professions, thereby facilitating an effective interdisciplinary approach to teamwork. The authors include leading European doctors and scientists who have influenced the development of the multidisciplinary team concept as well as other aspects of high-quality, individualized treatment of CRC patients.

From the book reviews:

“This is an interesting book in that it not only covers the various aspects of colorectal cancer care … it also discusses how to achieve multidisciplinary treatment of patients. … This is intended for all members of the multidisciplinary team, including those in training, and it is appropriately written for this broad audience. … This is a wonderful book that provides useful information, particularly for individuals and institutions transitioning to a multidisciplinary approach to colorectal cancer treatment.” (Jennifer Erin Hrabe, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2015)
