This concise and handy manual provides straightforward, up-to-date guidance for cardiologists and other practitioners on the management of cancer patients with cardiac problems, whether they be due to the cancer itself or to antineoplastic treatment. Detailed attention is devoted to the various forms of cardiotoxicity associated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The drugs commonly responsible for each toxicity are identified and clear advice is offered on monitoring techniques and treatment approaches. In addition, the issue of cardiotoxicity due to cancer treatment in particular patient groups – children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing cardiac disease – is addressed separately, with guidance on when and how antineoplastic (and/or cardiological) treatments should be modified. Further sections describe the correct responses to cardiac problems secondary to the cancer itself, including thromboembolic disorders and electrolyte imbalances, and the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of cardiac tumors. A closing section considers how to improve cooperation between oncologists, cardiologists, and general practitioners to ensure that cancer patients’ cardiovascular needs are met in a multidisciplinary approach.
Co-edited and written by an interdisciplinary team of experts in oncology and cardiology, this book is a clinically useful resource on these overlapping topics: • Cardiac complications in patients receiving cancer therapy • The treatment of cancer in patients with cardiovascular disease • The treatment of cardiovascular disease in patients with cancer When relevant to medical practice, epidemiology and basic science are also included in the discussion and each chapter is written by an oncologist and a cardiologist. Additionally, the chapters follow a similar format to make the book truly interdisciplinary, user-friendly, and clinically applicable to specialists and non-specialists who care for patients with both cancer and cardiovascular disease.

The Department of Cardiology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center was established on September, 1, 2000. In the past 15 years, we have evaluated and treated more than 10,000 cancer patients with cancer ther¬apy-related cardiovascular complications. Three years ago, we initiated the MD Anderson Practice (MAP) project to distillate our practice patterns into al¬gorithms to be shared with the onco-cardiology community. Because cancer is often an exclusion criterion for cardiology studies, purely evidence-based man¬agement of cancer therapy-related cardiovascular complications is not possible. With this vacuum of knowledge, various "guidelines" have proliferated that are either misleading or difficult to practice. In this manual, we present 16 MAPs that have been extensively reviewed by the cardiologists at MD Anderson. These MAPs should be considered our best practices rather than "guidelines." These MAPs will be updated frequently to reflect advances in the field. This manual con¬sists of MAPs, figures, and tables. We hope you will find these materials useful to your practice and provide us with feedback to improve these MAPs.

Around 85 children die each year in the UK due to abuse or neglect. A number of these deaths are later deemed preventable because the child involved was known to either social services or to a health professional. Cases such as those of Baby P and Victoria Climbie highlighted the failings of these organisations, ones set up to safeguard children. It is the responsibility of every health professional worldwide to identify and respond to child abuse and yet that very responsibility is both emotionally and strategically challenging. The Child Protection Practice Manual: Training practitioners how to safeguard children equips professionals with the ability to recognise a child at risk and the knowledge of how to work with a child already suffering abuse. Practical advice is offered on how to navigate the multi-disciplinary processes. Fictional case studies and exercises immerse the reader in scenarios. Building on this, the authors lead readers through learning points, recommendations, and legislation. With new definitions in child protection ranging from child sexual exploitation, gang violence, radicalisation and internet bullying through to female genital mutilation, witchcraft and spirit possession, honour based violence and forced marriage, this book will be a valuable resource for qualified paediatricians and those in training, as well as professionals who have contact with children such as GPs, nurses, health visitors, social workers, midwives, teachers, lawyers, and community workers.
