Book Description

5 April 2011 0857295152 978-0857295156 2010
There has been a recent surge of interest in the general topic of how older patients should be treated with various forms of malignancy, with particular focus on the management of breast cancer. This group of patients has been neglected in the past, with a failure to recruit them to clinical trials resulting in a lack of evidence on which to base treatment guidelines. The co-editors on this title are directly involved in a number of initiatives to address this gap in knowledge, and are thus perfectly placed to invite other expert individuals to author specific chapters in the proposed text.

“This book is to provide readers with a review of the management of breast cancer in the older woman. … volume provides a detailed background to each topic with clear and helpful evidence based guidance. … book succeeds in providing evidence based guidance on virtually all aspects of breast cancer management. It represents good value for money … and is an asset to the library.

“A slim but comprehensive review of the issues related to treating breast cancer in older patients. … it includes information about geriatrics as well as breast cancer biology and brings it all together in the treatment chapters. … Intended for practitioners who are taking care of older women with breast cancer, this book is aimed at not only cancer specialists, but also primary care physicians. … an excellent book that will provide guidance to a wide range of specialists who take care of these women.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2011)

“Reed and Riccardo, have an established research and clinical interest in management of older women with breast cancer and have assembled a multidisciplinary panel of experts who contributed to various chapters in their field of expertise. … The book aims to provide readers with the best available evidence in this field. … a very well-written book and the editors and contributors have done justice to this topic. … a valuable resource for clinicians and other health-care professionals who deal with elderly patients with breast cancer.” (Mohammed Keshtgar, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 72 (4), April, 2011)
