This textbook is unique in that it is the first European text for nurses practicing beyond the novice level in cancer nursing. Previously European cancer nurses have had to rely on North American texts, which are not always culturally transferable. The book presents a synthesis of important issues, which underpin the practice of advanced cancer nursing and are vital to experienced practitioners in moving cancer nursing forward. The central concerns of the book reflect the emerging roles of the advanced specialist practitioner and include advanced practice, education, management and research. The text is written by recognised cancer nursing experts from throughout Europe who collectively are involved in shaping the future of cancer nursing across the continent.
