A practical and comprehensive guide to fostering behavioral and emotional health in cancer patients – from one of the world’s leading cancer treatment centers

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This is a very helpful guide for continuity of care in addressing these often silent issues with cancer patients. It also will assist in the often difficult conversations that need to take place with these patients, such as poor prognosis, failed treatment, or noncompliance."—Doody's Review Service

Reflecting the collective expertise of more than forty contributors, most from the renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center, this manual addresses key psychological and behavioral issues that should be considered when treating cancer patients, including special populations such as children and the elderly.

Coverage includes:

  • Communicating with patients and family
  • Distress and cancer
  • Assessment and management of psychological symptoms, including mood disorders, anxiety, fatigue, substance abuse, and delirium
  • Family and cultural issues, including spirituality and religion and supporting the caregiver
  • Integrative medicine
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation
  • Grief and end-of-life issues, including non-pharmacologic interventions and palliative medicine
  • Healthcare professional wellbeing

MD Anderson Manual of Psychosocial Oncology is designed to be a practical guide for clinicians and allied professionals in the day-to-day practice of psychosocial oncology, which is an essential component of the comprehensive care of cancer patients and their caregivers.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Arlenda C Thompson, BSN (University of New Mexico Hospital)
Description: This book explains the psychosocial sequelae patients endure as a result of cancer and its treatment. It describes the benefits and drawbacks of clinicians' approaches to these problems.
Purpose: It is "intended to provide oncology clinicians with a readily accessible clinical resource that will assist them in identifying and addressing the unique psychosociospiritual needs of their patients [as they journey through their challenges and terrors of their illness...]", according to the preface. This is a very real issue with this patient population, and this book meets its objective.
Audience: The authors intend this book for all clinicians treating patients with cancer. It also may be helpful to healthcare providers for other patient populations with difficult diagnoses.
Features: The book discusses matters of coping with diagnosis and treatment of cancer, which can include decision making, providing and receiving prognoses, substance abuse, compliance with treatment, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and pain. The flow charts are very helpful algorithms as a guide for the approach to a problem. The various topics are well thought out, organized, and complete.
Assessment: This is a very helpful guide for continuity of care in addressing these often silent issues with cancer patients. It also will assist in the often difficult conversations that need to take place with these patients, such as poor prognosis, failed treatment, or noncompliance. It compares well to other offerings in the field, Psychosocial Dimensions of Oncology Nursing Care, 2nd edition, Burke, (Oncology Nursing Society, 2009), and Oncology: An Evidence-Based Approach, Chang et al. (Springer, 2005).
