ESMO Handbook on Cancer Treatment in Special Clinical Situations

ESMO Handbook on Cancer Treatment in Special Clinical Situations

Since 2011 ESMO is self-publishing the ESMO Handbook Series: for any requests concerning publications from 2011 or later please contact ESMO (select 'Publications (non-Journal)').

This handbook is designed to assist medical oncologists with challenging or complex situations, when modification of standard treatment in clinical practice is necessary. The aim of this book is to help physicians treat cancer patients in special medical as well as personal situations, where it is difficult to obtain the necessary information through a quick bibliographic search. This volume deals with clinical topics as well as social topics that relate to interpersonal relationships, beliefs and the patient’s capacity to make decisions. By exploring some of these special situations that affect cancer patients during their cancer diagnosis and treatment, medical oncologists will learn how to better anticipate and to manage these situations, particularly when multiple illnesses are present or a patient’s personal preferences contradict standard clinical practice.
