This era of information overload, it is critically important to have a
practical manual that is helpful to physicians taking care of patients with
cancer. This latest update is based on the 2nd
edition and it includes additional features and enhanced functionality. The Washington Manual™ of Oncology puts authoritative patient
management recommendations at the clinician's fingertips.
This edition has been reorganized into three major sections:
- Principles of oncology
- Site-specific diseases
- Supportive therapy
New chapters cover being an oncologist; principles of cytotoxic therapy; principles of molecularly targeted therapy; principles of clinical research; basics of molecular oncogenesis; pharmacogenomics; molecular diagnostics; cancer and thrombosis; management of complications of chemotherapy; and transfusion medicine. New appendices cover body surface area, dose adjustments of chemotherapy agents in renal and hepatic failure, and online resources for oncologists.
The electronic text follows the easy-to-scan outline format that has made the
printed manual so popular with busy clinicians.
