Practical Management of Thyroid Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Ernest L. Mazzaferri, Clive Harmer, Ujjal K. Mallick, Pat Kendall-Taylor 2005
Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts involved in the development of standards and guidelines for its management in the USA, UK, Europe and Asia, the book contains succinct and knowledgeable summaries of the management of thyroid cancer. Every chapter describes a different aspect of care, and provides clear and detailed information about caring for patients with this group of tumors. The book follows the American and European model of treating thyroid cancer according to the high standards recommended by the available guidelines. This is an invaluable reference to health care professionals, from primary to tertiary care, involved in the management of thyroid cancer such as clinical nurse specialists, clinical psychologists, family medicine practitioners, specialists in palliative care (especially for anaplastic thyroid cancers), geneticists and surgeons, endocrinologists, oncologists, pathologists, and radiologists.
