"This book, from the International Psycho-oncology Society, is the second in a series of brief Companion Guides for Clinicians. The series editors identified a need for a guide to focus on the impact of cancer and oncology treatments on sexual health, fertility and relationships. The topic is approached from a psycho-oncology perspective, i.e. placing the emotional, behavioural and social elements at the centre of the topics covered in the chapters.The aim is to describe approaches and treatments that can be utilised by cancer clinicians, mental health professionals, psycho-oncologists in training and allied psychosocial oncology professionals. It emphasises the importance of multidisciplinary care. The guide is not intended to replace national clinical guidelines and policies but gives a more generic international overview of the important factors and elements that need to be considered when dealing with sexual health, fertility and associated relationship issues for cancer patients at all points on the treatment trajectory. Topics include: management of sexual health; onco-fertility care; relationship issues. It covers standards of good practice across all cancer patients, as well as focussing on the needs of individuals, couples, young people and LGBT groups in a pragmatic format for use in everyday practice.Assessment methods are covered, alongside psychological treatments, covering a wide range of patient ages and types of cancer. Policies, service issues, legal, ethical, confidentiality and communication issues are also covered.This brief pocketbook manual can be used for quick reference. This will suit oncology professionals who decide to look further into a topic on a case-by-case or problem-focussed basis as they undertake clinical work"--

Nursing Care in the Genomic Era: A Case Based Approach is designed to provide nurses with up-to-date and accessible information on this powerful new approach to understanding, preventing, and treating disease.
Author: Jean F. Jenkins
Publisher: Jones & Bartlett Learning
Increasingly, genomic-based approaches and resources are redefining our categorization of disease, leading to new approaches to prevention and therapy. As nurses traditionally practice patient-oriented care, they will undoubtedly play a key role in both developing and applying the aspects of genomic health care. Nursing Care in the Genomic Era: A Case Based Approach is designed to provide nurses with up-to-date and accessible information on this powerful new approach to understanding, preventing, and treating disease.The framework for each chapter consists of core competencies in genetics, interwoven with stories that highlight a particular condition and the related biological, personal, and psychosocial issues. The chapters then go on to address the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for nurses and health professionals as recommended by the National Coalition for Health Professional Education in Genetics (NCHPEG). The text presents the genetic components of common diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer's, and the innovative technologies used to detect them.Understanding genomic issues and how they affect individuals and families is the first step for nurses hoping to make a difference when providing nursing care in the genomic era.
