Cases in Head and Neck Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Free sample

 Cases in Head and Neck Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach encompasses rich material and resources that demonstrate the complex interface between the diagnostic and clinical information necessary to successfully manage patients with head and neck cancer. This must-read book contains cases written by leading experts in the field that cover a wide variety of head and neck cancers (i.e., tongue base, tonsil, laryngeal, HPV related, etc.) and treatment options, including minimally invasive surgery such as robotic surgery and combined modality treatment protocols. Specifically, this text addresses comprehensive cases from initial evaluation, diagnosis, imaging, and other physiological tests to multidisciplinary treatment management (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy). Additionally, approaches for the management of toxicities or morbidities of cancer treatment are presented, as well as care plans, discharge plans, and caregiver burden and survivorship issues. Moreover, material on health literacy, humanistic care, and improving communication with assistive technology has been included.

Written by clinicians specializing in speech-language pathology, otolaryngology, medical and radiation oncology, pathology, nurse case management, radiology, dietics, among other fields, this collection of authors provides one of the most complete presentations of the inner workings of the multidisciplinary care team.

The adult cases of head and neck cancer reviewed in this text exemplify current practice issues surrounding HPV, minimally invasive robotic surgery and combined modality treatments. Each author threads introductory comments throughout the cases illustrating the critical role of the speech-language pathologist, in particular, and how all clinicians must address coping with survivorship and caregiver burden issues.

Cases in Head and Neck Cancer intends to teach future medical practitioners how to approach the complexities associated with head and neck cancer. Its vast number of images and videos allow for experiential driven classroom activities. This text will be an invaluable resource for the education of speech-language pathologists, medical students, nurse care managers, dieticians, and any person involved in a head and neck cancer team.

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture

內容簡介: 「這本《男人食肆》,不光是一本介紹男人喜歡吃的料理的專書,也不是一般意義上的旅遊書,也不是一本嚴格定義下的性別討論專書。 這本書,就是把我由男生蛻變成為男人的重要分水嶺上,借討論男人喜歡的食物來比喻男人的一本書,也是我跟另一位真男人,我欣賞看好的設計師Henry Ho一同分享見証的重要紀錄。裏面雖然離我們當初所擬想那種Family Man與不婚王老五、腳踏實地與無腳小鳥、成熟男與kidult之類的對比相差很遠,但我以為,這樣的乍遠還近、無以名狀,才是更貼近現今男人的真實狀況,更值得我們細味。 是時候跳出那些大男人小男人,宅男與港男之類的狹窄胡同了。想成為一個真正的男人,就該先閉上嘴巴,開闊你的視野。 如果你跟我有同樣的煩惱與疑惑,如果你想好好了解你自己,或者了解你身邊的男人,甚至是那些長不大的男生,這本書,大概都能夠給你一點啟迪與方向——只要你沒有被書裏面豐腴豪快的男前美食所吸引住的話。 好男人與好男人的食物,從來,都教人覬覦垂涎。」 - 王貽興 作者簡介 王貽興,中文文學雙年獎最年輕得主。還是喜歡當作家多於藝人。相信愛情,但不相信婚姻。念舊。努力學習專一。任性。天真。沒有別人所想那麼好,但又沒有自己所想那麼壞。仍然期待perfect match的出現。
