Problem Solving in Acute Oncology Excerpt :

Created in partnership with the Association of Cancer Physicians (ACP) Structured problem solving approach illustrated through 38 case studies Suitable for acute oncology teams including in the community, and trainees Provides a template for acute service development and emergency treatment The development and delivery of acute oncology services have undoubtedly improved the care of cancer patients, the management of acute complications of cancer and its treatment, and our approaches to diagnosing patients who present with cancer and no obvious primary site. There remains a need to ensure that practitioners are kept fully informed and up-to-date about the appropriate clinical care to be provided in the setting of acute oncology, and to continue a dialogue on the best way to deliver acute oncology services within limited resources. Since the first edition of Problem Solving in Acute Oncology was published there has been continued development and expansion of services. The importance of the involvement of primary care in delivering acute oncology nationally has been increasingly recognized, leading to the development of ever stronger links between the two. Closer working with acute medicine physicians has also improved the care of acute oncology patients; work is ongoing to encourage closer collaboration between acute oncology services and clinical haematology. This updated text is particularly helpful and timely. It will serve as a valuable resource for those who continue to develop excellent acute oncology services, as well as provide a source of training and an update for clinicians working in this challenging clinical area. This book proposes a template that can be used by any professional involved in the planning and delivery of acute oncology care around the world. The book is formally supported by the Association of Cancer Physicians (ACP). This highly patient-centred, readable text will be of value to clinicians, healthcare strategic and operations managers, a
