Caring for children with cancer is one of the most technically and
emotionally difficult areas in nursing.  Not only are you dealing with
children and adolescents who hurt, you must reassure and educate families,
balance a multitude of other health care professionals, and keep up with
ever-changing nursing practice and care. To help special nurses stay aware
of the newest effective nursing practices, innovative therapeutic
approaches, significant information trends, and most practical research in
hematology and pediatric oncology nursing, you need the Journal of Pediatric
Oncology Nursing.

The journal offers pediatric hematology, oncology, and immunology nurses in
clinical practice and research, pediatric social workers, epidemiologists,
clinical psychologists, child life specialists and nursing educators the
latest peer-reviewed original research and definitive reviews on the whole
spectrum of nursing care of childhood cancers, including leukemias, solid
tumors and lymphomas, and hematologic disorders. JOPON covers the entire
disease process--diagnosis, treatment, recovery, and survival, as well as
end-of-life care.

Six times a year, the Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing introduces new
and useful nursing care practice and research from around the world that
saves you time and effort.

Other important features include Guest Editorials from experts in the
discipline, Point/Counterpoint debates, Roadmaps (personal insights into the
nursing experience), and Proceedings and Abstracts from the annual
Association for Pediatric Oncology Nurses (APON) conference.
