An invaluable resource for both the registered nurse with a general interest in cervical cancer and for the nurse specialist working in primary health, gynaecology, oncology and palliative care

This is a practically-based text for clinical nurses who wish to consolidate and update their knowledge of cervical cancer. It is concise, containing comprehensive information for general practice together with useful references to facilitate more in-depth study.

As well as containing the essential chapters about the pathophysiology and treatment of cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer, the book also addresses specific nursing issues such as sexuality, fertility, and symptom control. Moreover, it examines the bigger, global picture of the disease. Full appreciation of global impact of cervical cancer on women involves an appreciation of the social, political and public health aspects of the disease – not only in the developed world but also in developing countries.
