The fourth edition of the Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Guidelines and Recommendations for Practice has been revised and updated to reflect the current procedures and practices in your specialty.

To help you find the content and information that you need quickly and easily, the text has been reorganized and is now divided into 11 chapters ranging from an overview of cancer and cancer treatment and principles of antineoplastic therapy to post-treatment care and competencies in chemotherapy administration.

Patient education information has also been expanded to emphasize importance of education in patient care. And finally, look for new information on chemotherapy sequencing and updates on the nursing management of treatment side effects.

As with previous editions, the guidelines strive to bring you the latest details on approved drugs, standards of practice, and available evidence. Make sure to update your library with this latest edition of one of the most trusted and widely used resources for practicing oncology nurses.
