  • “The content of this book is of excellent quality. [It] covers all areas of symptom management in the care of oncology patients. Included are nausea/vomiting, cachexia, lymphedema, increased intracranial pressure, dyspnea, bleeding, effusions, and psychosocial and sexual function. Each topic is dissected to address its pathophysiology, assessment, nursing management, and patient management strategies. Each chapter/symptom also includes the Self-Care Guide for patient teaching, which is, perhaps, the most unique feature of the book. I am pleased to see the new sections dealing with hypersensitivity reactions to antineoplastic drugs and the symptoms when death is imminent.” - Lorna Montoya, BSN, University of New Mexico Hospital, Doody’s Review Service
