Summary:

Patients undergoing cancer treatment frequently ask healthcare professionals to assess some variation of rash, abrasion, ulceration, pruritus, or inflammatory cutaneous reaction. Nurses are challenged to provide effective care for oncology patients who develop skin problems associated with the toxicities of chemotherapy, radiation, or combination therapies. With newer pharmaceutical agents and advanced technology in radiation therapy allowing higher treatment doses, the incidence and severity of alterations in skin integrity are increasing. Principles of Skin Care and the Oncology Patient, edited by Marilyn L. Haas and Giselle J. Moore-Higgs, provides comprehensive information to guide practitioners in caring for the patient with cancer who has developed skin problems. Featuring color photos and evidence-based interventions, this book is a must-have in any clinical setting.
