Cancer in Children: Clinical Management (Oxford Medical Publications)


“Cancer in children” introduces paediatric oncology in a clear and concise way, covering all the possible complications that can arise during treatment and the various outcomes of the illness. Although childhood cancer is rare, accounting for under 1% of all cancer in industrialized countries, it is one of great scientific interest for a number of reasons. Several types of cancer are virtually unique to childhood, whereas the carcinomas most frequently seen in adults are extremely rare among children. Some of the most striking progress in cancer treatment has been made in paediatric oncology. Investigation of childhood tumours has led to major advances in the understanding of the genetic aetiology of cancer. “Cancer in Children” brings together an international group of highly respected editors and contributors who provide evidence-based information on how to investigate and treat the common cancers in childhood. State of the art descriptions of what is basic and essential for management are included; there are new chapters covering future trends in cancer chemotherapy, surgery, palliative care, myeloid leukaemia, and malignant mesenchymal tumours; two new editors, and many new contributors. Aimed at paediatric oncologists, trainees in oncology and paediatrics, this book will also appeal to paediatric nurses, cancer nurses, and paramedical paediatric staff.

Regional Mortality Differences in Germany (Demographic Research Monographs)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Eva U.B. Kibele

Regional mortality differences are one dimension of health inequalities, but its trends and determinants in Germany are widely unknown. This book examines and illustrates patterns of regional mortality in Germany?with focus on small-area differentials?and their changes over time. It identifies explanatory factors at individual and regional level. Mortality differences between eastern and western Germany exist, but small-area mortality differentials are often greater. Though the main spatial mortality patterns remain, this study provides evidence that some distinct changes in the small-area mortality patterns in Germany?especially among women?occurred within a short period of time. Mortality inequalities at younger ages and in behavior-related causes as well as differences in socioeconomic conditions contribute strongly to regional mortality differences in Germany. The book shows that the complex interplay between individual- and regional-level mortality risk factors requires a multidimensional approach to reduce regional mortality inequalities.

Pediatric Radiotherapy Planning and Treatment


By (author): Arthur J. Olch

By becoming knowledgeable about optimal treatment methods designed specifically for childhood cancers, members of a radiotherapy team can help improve both pediatric cancer survival statistics and patients’ quality of life. Pediatric Radiotherapy Planning and Treatment is the first single, focused resource available for health care providers to accurately plan and deliver radiation therapy to children.

The first section of the book discusses the statistics of pediatric cancer incidence and survival. It also reviews the literature on radiation-induced secondary malignancies, addressing the use of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in children.

The second section presents disease-specific chapters. Each chapter in this section gives a clinical overview of the disease, describes treatment planning and delivery concepts and guidance, and surveys late effects and organ tolerance doses. Many of the techniques presented can be readily translated to any radiotherapy department. The book also explores the historical background underpinning current treatment paradigms, which reveals the tremendous creativity of radiation oncologists and physicists in addressing difficult treatment dilemmas.

Medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiation oncologists, and others in a pediatric radiotherapy team must understand pediatric cancers and know how to accurately and safely implement optimal treatments to minimize late effects and maximize the chance for cure or palliation. The methods and clinical background in this book help these health care providers?even those with no formal training in pediatric radiotherapy?recognize the differences between pediatric cancers and adult cancers and then design and administer an appropriate treatment plan.

It has three major sections with the essays in each section loosely organized about a common general theme. The first section focuses on issues concerning the relation between children’s well-being and autonomy or agency. The second section deals with child well-being insofar as the limits of parental authority are concerned. The third section has a more applied orientation and addresses a variety of public policy controversies involving the interpretation of children’s well-being.

Social Determinants of Health


Social Determinants of Health, 2E gives an authoritative overview of the social and economic factors which are known to be the most powerful determinants of population health in modern societies. Written by acknowledged experts in each field, it provides accessible summaries of the scientific justification for isolating different aspects of social and economic life as the primary determinants of a population’s health.

The new edition takes account of the most recent research and also includes additional chapters on ethnicity and health, sexual behaviors, the elderly, housing and neighborhoods.

Recognition of the power of socioeconomic factors as determinants of health came initially from research on health inequalities. This has led to a view of health as not simply about individual behavior or exposure to risk, but how the socially and economically structured way of life of a population shapes its health. Thus exercise and accidents as as much about a society’s transport system as about individual decisions; and the nation’s diet involves agriculture, food manufacture, retailing, and personal incomes as much as individual choice. But a major new element in the picture we have developed is the importance of the social, or psycho-social, environment to health. For example, health in the workplace for most employees – certainly for office workers – is less a matter of exposure to physical health hazards as of the social envrionment, of how supportive it is, whether people have control over their work, whether their jobs are secure.
