As well as being an essential attachment in undergraduate medicine programs, oncology has a pervading importance throughout medical education from the undergraduate years and beyond. With the highly acclaimed first edition of this book as a foundation, the second edition presents a clear and compact survey of oncology, which equips students for their oncology attachment, and informs the study of cancer in related disciplines, particularly nursing and radiotherapy. The book also provides the basics for treating cancer patients in the early years as a doctor.
Many of those health care professionals involved in the care of patients in the community have given up trying to understand the complexities of oncology management. In part this is due to a lack of familiarity with novel cancer treatments but also due to the centralizing of care at regional tertiary centres. Oncology, An Oxford Core Text provides a gateway to understanding the key issues involved.
