The second edition of Advanced Oncology Certification Review and Resource Manual is a must-have for nurses preparing to take the AOCNS® or AOCNP® examinations as well as advanced oncology clinicians. This updated and expanded manual gives a comprehensive overview of the key knowledge areas covered in the advanced certification examinations, with chapter content correlated to the weighting assigned to specific topics in the tests. Case studies and sample test questions are included to enhance your understanding of the topic areas. Not just a certification review book, this manual is an invaluable practice resource providing in-depth information on a wide range of oncology topics encountered in the clinical setting.
Head and Neck Cancer (Second Edition), the latest update to the popular Site-Specific Cancer Series, provides essential information for nurses caring for patients with these complex, often debilitating, cancers. It presents detailed content on anatomy and physiology of the head and neck, risk factors, staging, pathophysiology, prevention and early detection, treatment modalities, and symptom management. In addition, survivorship challenges are explored in depth, and a chapter on nursing research examines the current and future directions in treatment and patient care.
Delivering effective education to clinical staff is wrought with challenges, especially in today’s healthcare environment. The upcoming book Nursing Professional Development for Clinical Educators will guide you through the ever-changing scope and standards of clinical nursing education and the healthcare trends that influence the educator’s role. It provides essential guidance in understanding the responsibilities of nursing staff development, orienting nursing staff to the clinical unit, developing educational programs, and helping staff develop as professionals.
And finally, don’t miss the upcoming Ethics in Oncology Nursing, which examines the many challenging ethical situations that can arise in the care of patients with cancer. Oncology care can raise complex and often troubling issues for patients, families, and nurses. Sometimes, ethical principles and obligations are in conflict, which creates ethical dilemmas. In addition to foundational content on ethics and ethical practice, the chapters in this book address key areas in oncology nursing associated with ethical concerns. Each is authored by an expert on the subject and structured with specific content on each topic, implications for practice, and application in a case study.
