This is a comprehensive guide to cervical cancer for nurses. It is a
practically-based text for clinical nurses who wish to consolidate and
update their knowledge of cervical cancer. It is concise, containing
comprehensive information for general practice together with useful
references to facilitate more in-depth study. Thus it provides an
invaluable resource for both the registered nurse with a general
interest in cervical cancer and for the nurse specialist working in
primary health, gynaecology, oncology and palliative care.
As well as containing the essential chapters about the pathophysiology
and treatment of cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer, the book
also addresses specific nursing issues such as sexuality, fertility, and
symptom control. Moreover it examines the bigger, global picture of the
disease. Full appreciation of global impact of cervical cancer on
women involves an appreciation of the social, political and public
health aspects of the disease – not only in the developed world but also
in developing countries.
