Written with a broader perspective and knowledge, Cancer Supportive Care: Advances in Therapeutic Strategies presents state-of-the-art management options for the full range of symptoms, toxicities, and complications experienced by cancer patients. In addition to "bread and butter" topics such as pain control and nausea and vomiting, the book contains unique, ground-breaking discussions of symptom measurement, the role of growth factors, and late effects and cancer survivorship.

Written by key opinion leaders in the field, Cancer Supportive Care: Advances in Therapeutic Strategies:

  • assembles and synthesizes state-of-the-art information into one convenient resource, helping busy clinicians learn the most effective supportive care strategies available
  • discusses emerging therapies and approaches
  • covers topics not included in other cancer supportive care books, such as measurement of symptoms, growth factors, thromboembolism, skeletal complications, fatigue, the elderly cancer patient, cancer survivorship, and alternative and integrative therapies
