PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To compare the effect of neuroleptic dose escalation, benzodiazepine rotation, combination therapy, and neuroleptic withdrawal on the change in the Richmond Agitation Sedation Scale (RASS) score over 24 hours in patients admitted to an acute palliative care unit (APCU) who do not respond to low-dose haloperidol. The book covers a wide range of topics, from types of cancer treatments and therapies, cancer symptoms, and some fundamentals of advanced practice nursing, including cancer screening, prevention, and early detection, genetic risk, cancer diagnosis and staging, all the way to cancer survivorship. Breast screening aims to find breast cancers early. It uses an X-ray test called a mammogram that can spot cancers when they're too small to see or feel. But there are some risks of breast cancer screening that you should be aware of.

This article reviews the literature published on use cases and challenges in applying predictive analytics to improve risk stratification in oncology. We characterized evidence-based use cases of predictive analytics in oncology into three distinct fields: (1 Cited by: 1.
