It also: • Addresses significant changes in cancer care, including expansion of nursing roles, the establishment of cancer networks and cancer collaborative projects • Considers NICE guidance on Supportive and Palliative care • Incorporates material on prevention and early detection • Includes evidence tables based on relevant literature Cancer Nursing: Care in Context is an invaluable resource for all those involved in the provision of cancer care and support to patients and their families.

After a brief description of the programme, the case delves into the ins and outs of achieving stakeholder buy-in, implementing feasible design and measurement objectives, handling sampling issues, and briefly reviewing data analysis and results.
