Contemporary Issues in Lung Cancer
Jones & Bartlett Publishers, 2010 M10 25 - 364 pages
In the United States, lung cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death. Even more devastating is its five-year survival rate of only 15.8%. Despite these dismal facts, lung cancer receives little national attention and research and funding for lung cancer lags behind other cancers. The intent of Contemporary Issues in Lung Cancer: A Nursing Perspective Second Edition is to provide oncology nurses and healthcare professionals with in-depth information on the issues that surround this disease, so that they might impact both education and research and provide better care for their patients.
