A comprehensive textbook of radiotherapy and related radiation physics and oncology for use by all those concerned with the uses of radiation and cytotoxic drugs in the treatment of patients with malignant disease. Walter & Miller's Textbook of Radiotherapy has become the core text for therapeutic radiography students and an important introductory text for trainee radiologists and clinical physicists. The book is divided into two parts: the first covers underlying principles of physics, and the second is a systematic review by tumour site concentrating on the role of radiotherapy in the treatment of malignant disease and setting its use in context with chemotherapy and surgery. The 7th edition continues the tradition of bringing the physics and clinical application of radiation for therapy together at entry level and is completely revised to take into account the huge technological advances in radiotherapy treatment since publication of the previous edition. *Imaging is now an essential part of radiotherapy, relevant for both the treatment and preparation of a patient's treatment. Radionuclide imaging and X-ray imaging have been expanded to MRI and PET, along with some use of ultrasound. *Treatment planning dose prediction - the basis and application of modern computational calculations are explained for modern treatment delivery systems. The role of the algorithm for dose prediction is central to ensure speedy and accurate calculations for treatment. *Quality Control *Quality Systems The book is supported by Evolve electronic resources: sample plans, additional diagnostic images and clinical photographs.

Much has changed since the first book Paediatric Oncology: Acute Nursing Care (1999), therefore, this new edition encompasses these changes in relation to the practice itself and the evidence that underpins it. Emphasis is placed on ensuring terminology is accurate, in keeping with the language of the current day. The book is divided into six sections: Chemotherapy, Haematopoetic Stem Cell Transplantation, General Surgery, Radiotherapy, Late Effects of cancer therapies, and Palliative Care. There is a brief commentary at the end of each section/chapter by a ‘novice’ author but experienced practitioner, highlighting to the reader what is already known and what the section/chapter adds to their current knowledge and practice.

The needs of cancer patients and their families are complex. Yetstill more complex are the powerful social and cultural forces thatshape the delivery of cancer care, and the way in which itexperienced. Cancer Nursing: Care in Context addresses this byadopting a unique approach that situates cancer care in the contextof society's attitudes to the disease, and the broader every-dayneeds of both patients and their carers. By combiningevidenced-based information, a critical view of care and treatment,and 'first-hand accounts' of having cancer and caring for peoplewith cancer, the book provides a new perspective how best todeliver the care that patients truly require. This second edition includes new chapters on prevention, diagnosis,symptoms, self-help and self-management, and living with cancerlong-term. It also: * Addresses significant changes in cancer care, including expansionof nursing roles, the establishment of cancer networks and cancercollaborative projects * Considers NICE guidance on Supportive and Palliative care * Incorporates material on prevention and early detection * Includes evidence tables based on relevant literature Cancer Nursing: Care in Context is an invaluable resource for allthose involved in the provision of cancer care and support topatients and their families.

Viele Menschen werden, auch schon in jüngeren Jahren, durch Verletzungen und Erkrankungen im Bereich des Zentralnervensystems hemiplegisch. Um eine optimale Eingliederung in Familie, Gesellschaft und Beruf zu erreichen, benötigt ein Halbseitengelähmter neben verschiedenen anderen Rehabilitationsmaßnahmen eine zielgerichtete Ergotherapie, die mit den Behandlungsgrundlagen nach Bobath Funktionsverbesserungen der paretischen Seite anstrebt. Durch Hemmung der Spastizität und der pathologischen Haltungs- und Bewegungsmuster werden die sensomotorischen Funktionen wieder ermöglicht und damit Körpersymmetrie, Sensibilität und Körperschema gefördert. Dieser praxisbezogene Leitfaden wurde in erster Linie für die fachspezifische Vertiefung in Ausbildung befindlicher und praktizierender Ergotherapeuten geschrieben. Ärzte, Physiotherapeuten und andere Mitarbeiter in der Rehabilitation bekommen mit diesem Buch einen Einblick in ein Spezialgebiet der Ergotherapie.
