With today's increasing number of cancer survivors, more clinical nurses are helping their patients through the survivorship process. The Jones and Bartlett Survivorship Series is a set of essential references for clinical nurses to help identify key components of survivorship care. Written by oncology nurses and coauthored by professionals in the fields of social work, physical therapy, and genetics these diagnosis-specific guides expertly deliver the information nurses need to positively impact treatment and plan for the future health of survivors. The manuals give valuable tips on counseling people with cancer through the various components of survivorship including diagnosis and treatment, follow-up, healthy behaviors and personal growth.
