Nutritional Issues in Cancer Care
Unlike other books on nutritional oncology that focus on the nutritional needs of patients during the various forms of treatment for cancer, Nutritional Issues in Cancer Care is designed to provide you with site-specific information regarding the disease, common treatment modalities, and nutrition implications. You'll also find nutrition assessment guidelines as well as care plan guides.
The format of the book allows you to reference the nutritional concerns of a particular diagnosis quickly so you can develop a proactive plan for intervention. Chapters detail nutritional issues in cancer prevention, complementary and alternative medicine, hospice and palliative care, and more. Cancer sites covered include breast, colorectal, esophageal and gastric, head and neck, lung, pancreatic, prostate, and many more. Unique to Nutritional Issues in Cancer Care, each chapter in the book is authored by an RN and a registered dietitian, providing first-hand suggestions for the many problems, frustrations, and difficulties each type of healthcare professional has experienced managing the needs of patients with cancer during and after treatment.
