Aromatherapy, massage and relaxation are three of the most commonly used therapies in cancer care. This book offers an integrated approach to using these therapies and provides an evidence-based foundation for complementary therapists working in cancer care settings. International in its scope, the book provides essential information about the ethical and professional context in which therapists can practice and vital facts regarding medical treatment and potential side effects.
“Absolutely invaluable for any nurse, therapist or physician who is exploring ways of ensuring that patients receiving cancer therapy are in the best of health for a successful outcome. Added to a thorough evidence-based text on many non-invasive interventions is perhaps the best overview of cancer and its treatments I have read for a long time. A book that is long overdue and deserves to be widely read.” – Prof Betty Kershaw DBE FRCN, Emeritus Dean, The School of Nursing and Midwifery, The University of Sheffield
“An evidence-based, user-friendly “how to…” book, both for the experienced and new complementary therapist working in cancer and palliative care. It will be helpful to other healthcare professionals too – to see how complementary therapies can make a difference and contribute to integrated care. The authors have generously shared their knowledge, expertise and experience.” – Marianne Tavares, MSc, Dip. DN, MIFPA, CAHP, Complementary Therapy Consultant, Palliative Care, Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and Hill House Hospice, Ontario, Canada

Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Reviewis the first book devoted entirely to providing the “must-know” facts on each cancer agent, including their pharmacokinetics, FDA-approved indications,toxicity, interactions, and other important information that is commonly found on board examinations and essential for any clinician or practitioner to review. The authors, an oncologist and two pharmacists, have developed a handy question-and-answer format to present the material in digestible bursts.
As the pharmacology section continues to represent a major portion of the medical oncology exam and a key component on oncology MOC exams, this portable study guide will help prepare anyone looking to fine-tune their knowledge on cancer drugs before the test. Not to mention, with recent advancements in the field of cancer treatment, it has become more cumbersome to recall and maintain essential knowledge of every cancer therapeutic, making this book not only an exam resource but also a handy quick reference for oncologists and pharmacists alike.
Conveniently organized and arranged by drug class and subtypes for easier recall and classification
Includes proper dosage adjustments to account for liver and kidney dysfunction
Features tables throughout that provide quick reference regarding FDA-approved medications
Simplified diagrams and illustrations facilitate the pharmacokinetic processes
