Washington Manual of Hematology and Oncology Subspeciality Consult 3rd Edition PDF
14.1 MB PDF
We are pleased to present the third edition of The Washington Manual™ Hematology and Oncology Subspecialty Consult. The field of medical oncology continues to advance at a remarkable pace. Every year, new indications are found for existing therapies and new anti-cancer drugs are approved. Staging systems, classifications, and prognostic models are in flux, reflecting the discovery of new biomarkers, changes in treatment algorithms, and the general improvement in patient outcomes. Therapeutic advances have also been made in benign hematology, particularly with the introduction of novel anticoagulants.
This edition has been updated to include new standards in the treatment of malignancies and hematologic disorders, mechanisms of action of new therapeutic agents, and current use of molecular prognostic factors. The information in each chapter is now presented in a consistent format, with important references cited. Our goal is to provide a concise, practical reference for fellows, residents, and medical students rotating on hematology and oncology subspecialty services. Most of the authors are hematology–oncology fellows or internal medicine residents, the physicians who have recent experience with the issues and questions that arise in the course of training in these subspecialties. Primary care practitioners and other health care professionals also will find this manual useful as a quick reference source in hematology and oncology.
As the practice of hematology and oncology continues to evolve, changes in dosing and indications for chemotherapy and targeted therapies will occur, and staging systems will be modified. We recommend a handbook of chemotherapy regimens and an oncology staging manual to complement the information in this book. And of course, clinical judgment is imperative when applying the principles presented here to the care of individual patients.
