About this book


This book is a comprehensive guide that will help medical professionals – nurses, pediatric oncologists, pediatricians, family practitioners, internists, radiation oncologists, surgeons – to understand and manage the long-term effects of treatment for childhood and adolescent cancer. The consequences of treatment are described for each organ system, with explanation of pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, detection and screening, and management. Disease- and organ-based algorithms of care and tables designed to facilitate the assessment of late effects are highlights of the book and will assist in the provision of hands-on care that is up to date and geared to clinical need.  Among the other topics addressed are stem cell transplantation, psychological care, legal issues, transition to adulthood, and methodological issues in the study of survivorship care.
