ABOUT THIS BOOK
- Covering all aspects of inflammatory breast cancer, this book provides valuable information not easily accessed anywhere else
- Authored by an expert team from the Instituto Nacional de Cancerología in Mexico
- Edited by international authorities on this rare but pernicious disease
Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer that occurs in women of all ages, and, rarely, in men. Variable disease presentation means that this disease is often undetected and patients with this diagnosis have a poor prognosis.
Inflammatory Breast Cancer brings together the existing clinical information on inflammatory breast cancer. The content covers epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis, histopathology and staging, therapy and management of patients with this disease. Recent advances in therapy have improved the prognosis of this type of cancer considerably, making this text a timely addition to the literature.
This book is an essential tool for medical, surgical and clinical oncologists specialising in breast cancer, who will inevitably encounter this rare but pernicious disease.

AUTHORS & EDITORS
Philip A. Smith, M.D. is a Board-certified Family Physician who first adopted technology in his private medical practice in November 1992 when he deployed an EMR in his office. In 1997, he left practice to pursue his interests in the field, co-founding a company, Cognitive Analysis, Inc. This company was probably the first in healthcare to utilize business process modeling – documenting information flow as a patient recognizes a need for medical care through the completion and adjudication of that care. In 2003, the author joined the Adventist Health System (AHS, Winter Park, FL), serving jointly as Vice President of Medical Affairs (and later Chief Medical Officer) at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills (FHZ, formerly East Pasco Medical Center) and as Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO). He left his position at FHZ in 2007 to focus full-time on CPOE in the CMIO role. He led AHSʼ design and implementation of CPOE, physician documentation and clinical decision support. He coined the term “commoditized CPOE” as he devised a methodology for rapid, big-bang rollout of CPOE for 25 community hospitals across nine states in only 27 months. Dr. Smith regularly speaks nationally on the topic of CPOE and Change Management, and most recently for Cerner Corporation, Zynx Health, Hewlett-Packard and Denison Consulting. Dr. Smith received his BSc degree in Health Sciences (Surgery) from Case Western Reserve University in 1979 as a physician assistant and his Masters of Science in Biological Sciences (physiology, in 1981) and his Medical Doctorate (1983) degrees at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. He completed his Family Practice Residency as Co-Chief Resident in 1986 at the University of Missouri ̶ Columbia. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. He is a member of the Association of Medical Directors of Information Services (AMDIS) and the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
