Rezensionen
From the reviews of the second edition: "This book describes and discusses childhood cancers in detail appropriate for advanced level practitioners. ... this book also is an excellent reference for general nursing practitioners wishing to expand the breadth of their knowledge in pediatric hematology and oncology. ... Each chapter uses a consistent format, making the book easy to reference. ... The art used throughout is colorful and relevant. This is an excellent book that will be useful for advanced practice nurses as well as general practitioners wishing to expand their knowledge base." (Theresa M. Bacon, Doody's Review Service, February, 2010) "Pediatric Oncology Nursing: Advanced Clinical Handbook is the resource every advanced practice hematology/oncology nurse, whether nurse practitioner or clinical specialist, should own. It delivers a thorough, well-organized, succinct discussion of childhood cancers and hematologic disorders. ... The detailed table of contents facilitates quick and easy location of whatever condition or aspect of that condition is desired. ... The economy of words increases the book's worth to the busy practitioner." (Sandra R. Mott, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (15), 2010)
