about

Lung Cancer:

Over the course of the last decade, the treatment of lung cancer has evolved quite rapidly. New scientific and clinical advances have modified the standard of care and led to improved patient outcomes. At the same time, the treatment of lung cancer has become increasingly complex, requiring the comprehensive review and assessment of multiple issues, genetics, radiology, surgery, reconstruction, chemotherapy, and more. As a result the harmony and open communication between these specialties facilitated by a multidisciplinary team approach are crucial in providing the best care to patients and ensuring successful treatment. Lung Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Diagnosis and Management, written by a multidisciplinary team of authors representing a range of disciplines, is a valuable resource for physicians, fellows, nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists, and all health care providers involved in the treatment of lung cancer. Lung Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Diagnosis and Management summarizes the state-of-the-art issues related to the treatment of lung cancer and describes an approach for optimal multidisciplinary care for individuals who have been diagnosed with lung cancer or who are at higher risk to develop lung cancer.
