The acclaim continues for Cancer Symptom Management, Fourth Edition by Connie Henke Yarbro, Debra Wujcik, and Barbara Holmes Gobel, our first place award winner in the 2013 AJN Book of the Year Awards in the Palliative Care and Hospice Category. Doody's Review Service recently published a review praising its "excellent quality" content.
Read more excerpts from the review by Lorna Montoya, BSN, from University of New Mexico Hospital,
[It] covers all areas of symptom management in the care of oncology patients. Included are nausea/vomiting, cachexia, lymphedema, increased intracranial pressure, dyspnea, bleeding, effusions, and psychosocial and sexual function. Each topic is dissected to address its pathophysiology, assessment, nursing management, and patient management strategies. Each chapter/symptom also includes the Self-Care Guide for patient teaching, which is, perhaps, the most unique feature of the book. I am pleased to see the new sections dealing with hypersensitivity reactions to antineoplastic drugs and the symptoms when death is imminent.”
