The calendar may still say 2012, but we just published the 2013 Oncology Nursing Drug Handbook by Gail M. Wilkes and Margaret Barton-Burke. Written especially for nurses caring for patients with cancer, it expresses drug therapy in terms of the nursing process: nursing diagnoses, etiologies of toxicities, and key points for nursing assessment, intervention, and evaluation.
Updated annually, 2013 Oncology Nursing Drug Handbook provides valuable information on effective symptom management, patient education, and chemotherapy administration. Completely revised and updated, it includes:
- New drug entries and revisions
- Specific drugs described in terms of their mechanism of action, metabolism, drug interactions, laboratory effects/interference, and special considerations
- The most important and common drug side effects
- Greater discussion of fundamentals of malignant transformation, new molecular targets, and drugs in the pipeline
