Beschreibung

Cancer control is the term applied to the development of integrated population-based approaches to reduce the incidence and mortality from cancer and to minimize its impact on affected individuals and on the community. The integrated nature of cancer control is reflected in this multi-disciplinary text, the first in this rapidly developing field.

With the completion of this extremely ambitious endeavour, the editors have succeeded in producing a consoliated resource to understand and address the many important issues associated with cancer control.
