Haematological oncology is a rapidly advancing and exciting field of medicine. This is the first British textbook addressing haematological oncology written specifically for nurses. The book is intended for qualified nurses working with, or having an interest in, haematological malignancies and will also be useful to student nurses and those undertaking specialist courses.

The second edition of this successful text has been fully revised and updated throughout in line with recent developments in clinical practice. There are seven new chapters and expanded sections on bone marrow transplant, the immune system and palliative care.
