Breast cancer affects 1 in 10 women and the majority of UK women will attend a breast clinic at least once during their lives. The patient's journey through assessment and management is one that involves a huge range of healthcare professionals, in which the truly multidisciplinary management style required has previously been only sparsely addressed. This book provides a practical guide on how to investigate and manage common breast problems for all members of thebreast disease team, whether surgeons, nurses, pathologists or support workers. Its focus is on providing easy access to the most up-to-date evidence, allowing healthcare workers to make the best decisions possible and encouraging a team approach to patient support.26 chapters cover the whole of the patient journey from assessment through to surgery and adjuvant treatments, giving a practical overview of the whole process of care. The coverage guides the reader from clinical examination and investigation of the breast patient to pre-operative workup and post-operative complication guidance. To enable swift and effective decision-making, clear management plans are provided for common breast problems. The book also includes the latest evidence, guidanceand references on breast disease, together with discussions on current controversies in the field including the management of margins, management of the axilla and the evidence surrounding the NHS Breast Screening Programme. To give practical advice on the realities of being part of a breast care team,the book also has several chapters devoted to leadership and management including MDT requirements, audit and research, avoiding complaints and the organisation of a breast unit.Enabling every healthcare professional to respond to patients' needs accurately and knowledgeably, Breast Disease Management is a practical guide for the whole team in providing truly patient-centred, effective care.

Recenzii

The authors have succeeded in putting together a book on breast surgery which is quite different from anything else in print...acts as a useful reference for a wide range of areas within the field of breast surgery. Although I have been a consultant for close to 20 years, I have found new information and interesting commentary in the book which has a readable style throughout...I would have no hesitation in reccomending this manual. These are plenty of textbooksabout breast disease, but this book addresses the fundamentals of how UK breast surgery works in practice.
The text is delivered in concise chapters adhering closely to the patient pathway. It's written in an informal and user-friendly style which is informative and easy to read... In summary, this text will provide a very valuable resource for its target audience and fills a vacant gap in the market in this role. Every breast unit would benefit from having a copy.
A highlight of this book is its discussion of reconstructive techniques. Few books are able to summarize the oncoplastic options available to patients in a way that this book does.
