Hematologic Malignancies in Adults
More than 180 years since Thomas Hodgkin identified the first hematologic malignancy, nurses are still learning the best ways to treat patients with these complex cancers. Hematologic Malignancies in Adults gives you comprehensive information on treatments, complications, and toxicity management for your everyday practice.
The book focuses on the management of disease-related manifestations and treatment-related side effects and toxicities. You’ll find details on forms of hematologic malignancies, including leukemia and lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, mature T-cell and NK-cell neoplasms, and multiple myeloma. Also included is a chapter on vascular access and a listing of drugs used in the treatment of hematologic malignancies.
The management of patients with myeloid and lymphoid neoplasms is unique, complex, and vital to ensuring successful outcomes and improved quality of life. This book gives you every tool you need to keep pace with the advances in medicine and science as you treat patients with hematologic malignancies.
