If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, you have a right to not only understand the disease but also know the medical options available. Though there is certainly no shortage of oncology reports, there is a definite lack of access to helpful information that nonmedical people can understand regarding existing cancer treatments.
Thankfully, oncology nurse practitioner Colleen O. Lee stepped into the void and wrote Cancer Care Standards: Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together to Personalize Medicine. This easy-to-read handbook uses side-by-side comparisons to ensure you see corresponding data in one place. Concise yet comprehensive, Lee reviews the development, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship aspects associated with cancer, as well as descriptions of the cancer care team, where to find standard of care guidelines, and an explanation of the factors associated with the most common cancers of today.
