ESMO Handbook of Advanced Cancer Care

2006 ESMO Handbook of Advanced Cancer Care

It is my privilege to introduce this Handbook on Advanced Cancer Care, which belongs to a series of publications initiated by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO). There is a great need, especially for medical oncologists, to have a comprehensive overview of the essential elements needed for the care of patients with advanced cancer. This handbook fulfils these requirements.

The Handbook on Advanced Cancer Care provides useful definitions and surveys of treatment principles. Excellent guidelines are provided for diagnostic procedures and therapies for various conditions associated with advanced cancer and its treatment. The chapters are written in a pedagogical manner with informative figures and tables and I believe this handbook will be of great value for all oncologists.
This handbook was written by experienced oncologists in their respective fields. I would like to convey my sincere thanks to all of them for their outstanding contribution. I am especially grateful to the editors, professors Raphael Catane, Nathan Cherny, Marianne Kloke, Stephan Tanneberger, and Dirk Schrijvers, for without their ceaseless efforts this excellent piece of work could not have been accomplished.

I am fully convinced that this ESMO Handbook of Advanced Cancer Care will serve as a reference guide for all oncologists and it is my sincere hope that you will find it useful and of great service.
