Managing the Oral Effects of Cancer Treatment

Oral cancers can be devastating, and toxicities from oncology treatments can compound existing conditions and lead to poor oral health. The first oncology textbook to guide clinicians through the management of oral health problems, Managing the Oral Effects of Cancer Treatment provides an overview of the fundamental skills of oral assessment and dental hygiene, treatment side effects related to the oral cavity, management strategies, and insight into survivorship issues.

Chapters cover the basics of oral health, including

  • Common oral conditions and manifestations
  • Fundamentals of dental hygiene and conducting oral assessments
  • Treatment of side effects such as oral mucositis, among others
  • Evidence-based practice and measuring tools
  • Nutrition management
  • Xerostomia and cytoprotection
  • Pain management
  • Issues involving speech, voice, and swallowing.

The book details how to develop an innovative mini-oral clinic in your practice and how to treat special patient populations, and it defines a symptom cluster model for oral health across the continuum of care.

Principles of Skin Care and the Oncology Patient

Skin care of patients with cancer can often be challenging and tricky without standard guidelines or a handy pocket guide. Principles of Skin Care and the Oncology Patient is a helpful resource to guide healthcare professionals who care for patients with cancer who develop skin problems.

The book begins with an overview of skin issues related to patients with cancer, including details on anatomy and physiology of the skin and accessory organs. A review of common drug reactions with cutaneous manifestations is included, as well as benign skin disorders and their impact on cancer therapy and malignant cutaneous diseases. The book also covers clinical considerations for purchasing wound care products and treatments.

Important information on skin reactions caused by radiation and chemotherapy is included, and manifestations are discussed. In addition, you’ll find details on how chronic disease impacts wound healing and how systemic and infectious skin disease can have implications for cancer treatment. Other topics include assessment and management of skin and wound pain; psychological distress related to skin problems; nutritional needs for healing skin; complementary therapies for oncology cutaneous reactions; and special needs for gero-oncology patients.
