  • Expert contributors and editor in this field who will provide up-to- date and relevant analysis of the subject.
  • Emphasises the partnership between nurse, child and family.
  • Discusses the impact of treatment on the nursing team. This is an important chapter as there is a lack of knowledge regarding the emotional cost of caring for children with cancer.
  • Focusing on nursing care rather than disease processes, this excellent research-based text looks at issues such as discharge planning, adolescents and cancer, and coping strategies for family and staff. It concentrates on the psychological and social aspects of care and reflects the radical changes that have occurred in recent years in this field.
