Increasing attention is being paid to the needs of cancer patients who present acutely with issues relating to their diagnosis an management, complications of their cancer, complications arising from their treatment, or who require appropriate symptom control or palliative care. Recent years have seen substantial service development to ensure acute oncology is appropriately provided, to improve outcomes and wellbeing of patients. 


A team of experts in cancer care have completely revised and updated the previous edition of this book to produce a template that can be used by any professional involved in the planning and delivery of acute oncology care around the world. This title is formally supported by the Association of Cancer Physicians (ACP). This updated text on Acute Oncology is particularly helpful and timely.  It will again serve as a valuable resource for those who continue to develop excellent Acute Oncology services as well as provide a source of training and update for clinicians working in this challenging clinical area.
