Summary
"Written expressly for nurses caring for patients with cancer, the 2011 Oncology Nursing Drug Handbook uniquely expresses drug therapy in terms of the nursing process: nursing diagnoses, etiologies of toxicities, and key points for nursing assessment, intervention, and evaluation. Updated annually, this essential reference provides valuable information on effective symptom management, patient education, and chemotherapy administration. Completely revised and updated, the 2011 Oncology Nursing Drug Handbook includes: new drug entries and revisions; specific drugs described in terms of their mechanism of action, metabolism, drug interactions, laboratory effects/interference, and special considerations; the most important and common drug side effects; and greater discussion of fundamentals of malignant transformation, new molecular targets, and drugs in the pipeline."--Publisher's description
