Despite the interdisciplinary treatment that laryngeal cancer requires, many resources offer the perspective of only one specific profession. Laryngeal Cancer: An Interdisciplinary Resource for Practitioners caters to the team approach that is needed to provide patients with evidence-based treatment and maximize outcomes.
To fill this need for an interdisciplinary text, Drs. Jennifer Campion Friberg and Lisa Vinney bring together a wide range of medical professionals to represent their unique perspectives on the treatment of patients with laryngeal cancer. Each chapter addresses a different critical aspect of the interdisciplinary care and how they impact the other aspects, written by experts in each field.
Sample Chapters Include:
- Medical and Surgical Diagnosis
- Airway and Respiratory Challenges
- Nutrition and Swallowing Challenges
- Psychosocial Care of the Patient
Bonus! A supplemental website is available for healthcare providers to share with their laryngeal cancer patients and their caregivers/families. This resource provides critical information about all aspects of their care and treatment, presented in a simple, digestible way for the layperson to understand.
When the whole team of health care professionals involved in laryngeal cancer management understands the big picture of care, they can tailor individual treatment priorities to the needs of each unique patient and maximize quality of life. Because of this, Laryngeal Cancer: An Interdisciplinary Resource for Practitioners is designed to be a comprehensive guide for any professional involved in the many facets of interdisciplinary care for patients with laryngeal cancer.
