Significant advances have been made over the past 10 years in our understanding of the pathogenesis of hematologic malignancies, leading to improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. This comprehensive new resource describes the pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of adult patients with hematologic malignancies and highlights the most important recent advances in the field.
Using the World Health Organization classifications to describe the variants of these diseases, this book details the clinical features, morphology, immunophenotyping, and cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities of leukemias, lymphomas, myelodysplastic syndromes, and other hematologic cancers. Also included are an extensive evidence-based summary of the management of the specific disease- and treatment-related complications, an overview of the management of vascular access devices, and a discussion of patient education.
Written entirely by advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), Hematologic Malignancies in Adults is an ideal resource for registered nurses, APRNs, and physician assistants, as well as physicians looking to expand their knowledge about this complex group of diseases.
