About the Author

Elizabeth C. Ward, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Division of Speech Pathology at the University of Queensland, Australia. Corina J. van As-Brooks, PhD, is a researcher and supervisor at the Netherlands Cancer Institute.


With the second edition of this book an updated and comprehensive review is given on treatment, rehabilitation and outcomes in patients with head and neck cancer. The book has been edited and written by two experienced speech and language pathologists and includes several contributions by international experts with different professional backgrounds. Its content covers all aspects of assessment and treatment outcomes with particular emphasis on multidisciplinary management and international perspectives. ================================================================= The new edition has twenty chapters including five new chapters. Most chapters are aimed at allied health professionals, presenting clear overviews of different aspects in the field of head and neck cancer. The book contains an introduction to oncological and medical treatment options including radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. Although these chapters may not necessarily add to physicians' clinical or content knowledge, this part of the book is deemed essential to allied health professionals in developing a better understanding of the concept of multidisciplinary interventions for people with head and neck cancer. The book includes information on the impact of head and neck cancer on quality of life and provides practical strategies on stoma care and appliances. The treatments of swallowing and voice conditions are covered, in addition to the rehabilitation of olfaction, taste and pulmonary function. ================================================================== A special chapter is dedicated to patient support and survivorship following treatment, which is a valuable addition to the new edition. The chapter on dietetic and nutrition interventions is a necessary and informative supplement. The more technical chapter on the indications for a tracheostomy and its management in this particular population will assist many clinicians to gain a better insight into these matters. New developments in technology and telehealth are used as an exemplar of how technology and health care can be integrated. Last but not least, international perspectives on the management of head and neck cancer are discussed in a final chapter. ================================================================= The book comes with a DVD to supplement eight of the twenty chapters. The DVD includes audio files, video footage and endoscopic and videofluoroscopic recordings of swallowing (FEES and MBS), which is a valuable resource for both clinicians and teaching academics alike. ================================================================= Overall, the book covers essential contemporary and seminal work in the area of head and neck cancer treatment, underscoring its usefulness as a clinical resource and an essential reading for both clinicians and students. The illustrations and pictures add to a better understanding of the content covered in each chapter. --A/Prof Renee Speyer, PhD, James Cook University, Speech Pathology, Australia, (2014)
