About the Book

In the United Kingdom there has been increasing attention paid to the needs of cancer patients who present acutely with issues relating to their diagnosis and management, complications of their cancer, complications arising from their treatment, or who require appropriate symptom control or palliative care. There is a substantial service development to ensure that Acute Oncology is appropriately provided in order to improve the outcomes and wellbeing of patients.

This book proposes a template that can be used by any professional involved in the planning and delivery of acute oncology care around the world. The book is formally supported by the Association of Cancer Physicians (ACP). This highly patient-centred, readable text will be of value to clinicians, healthcare strategic and operations managers, and doctors in training, in their daily work.
