Problem Solving Through Precision Oncology

While precision oncology has huge potential to improve the wellbeing and outcomes of treatment for cancer patients, the challenges of application can be daunting. This book is a highly practical resource, providing a succinct overview of latest progress in the field, and 15 clear teaching chapters to refresh knowledge.  It provides a hands-on guide for the cancer physician, including 21 real life case studies showing how to apply precision oncology in practice.

Problem Solving in Older Cancer Patients

An evidence-based guidebook supporting the clinical teams who manage older cancer patients, this practical guide will enable you to implement appropriate treatment strategies, which take account of comorbidities, frailty, and patient choice. The first section introduces the challenges facing clinical teams seeking to provide the best outcomes for their patients, while a second, larger, section of case studies (“Problems”) discusses and resolves real-life management scenarios. All chapters are multi-authored, drawing on a wide range of expert clinical experience in the field.

The book was awarded the First Prize in the 2016 BMA Medical Book Awards (oncology section).   To see the contents and view a sample chapter, click here
