Download Pocket Oncology Second Edition Pdf Book Description:

This is the second edition of the Pocket Oncology. The first edition, introduced in 2014, proved to be highly successful. Since there have been significant advances particularly in the areas of immunooncology and precision medicine over the past three years, we wanted to keep Pocket Oncology fresh. The authors of the chapters are leading cancer experts from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and as in the first edition our experts are often partnered with our outstanding fellows. Pocket Oncology is intended to provide a concise reference for trainees and practitioners of medical oncology and hematology. It spans a wide range of topics critical to the care of patients across the continuum of the disease from cancer biology, prevention, screening, treatment, and supportive care. We hope you find the handbook useful and look forward to your feedback to continue to improve and update. It is with great enthusiasm that we introduce the second edition of Pocket Oncology. The first edition was well received, and given many exciting new developments in the oncology, we are now eager to release an updated second edition. Several new sections have been added to this updated edition, including information on chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, immunotherapy toxicity, and novel oral anticoagulants. We have additionally incorporated more information about precision targeted therapeutic strategies. Each disease section has been updated to reflect cancer care in 2017.

Textbooks are excellent comprehensive resources, but we find that in the era of text messages, tweets, and short e-mails, there is a need for a concise resource where brief, trustworthy information can be found. We appreciate the often harried life of an oncologist, trainee, or other members of the oncology care team. Being able to quickly reach into the pocket of a white coat to obtain a general understanding of a topic is critical. Pocket Oncology was created to meet this need. We have organized this handbook into 28 thematic sections that cover the breadth of hematology and oncology. The handbook is further subdivided into 144 handy two-page spreads covering specific diseases or concepts, and tables and figures that are included within each spread for quick reference. We have also incorporated a section of clinically essential color photos and appendices. Cancer is too complex a disease to attempt to summarize in a handbook of any size. Clinical decision making and a nuanced understanding of the field certainly require additional reading and consultation. Pocket Oncology is only intended to be a quick reference and educational guide, providing useful information and providing a general context until more definitive resources such as the primary literature can be consulted. It is not a substitute for good clinical judgment nor intended to influence clinical decisions.
