Radcliffe Publishing, 2004 - Medical - 169 pages
This basic introduction to the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and to the key aspects of palliative and supportive care, is ideal for professionals at every level who are new to this area of care. The book offers the first stage of a professional development process that will ensure that a common core of information is available to all staff, helping to reduce inequalities of care. As a concise guide for staff working in all clinical areas, the topics included in this book will be of special relevance to non-professional carers and newcomers to cancer and palliative care. It can also be used as preparation for foundation courses in palliative care.
