DescriptionThis title offers a comprehensive overview of the treatment and care of the older adult with cancer. The evidence-based practice approach is timely and provides the foundation for nursing practice that is the expected standard of care. The use of the case study at the end of each chapter assists the reader in the synthesis and application of the information. The book addresses every aspect of the care and treatment of not only the cancer patient, but also the family. The chapter on complementary therapy is a bonus.
