Overview

Palliative Care Consultations in Haemoto-oncology is the first book in a new international, multi-contributed series aimed at providing practical, clinical guidance on how to deal with difficult symptoms related to specific cancer sites. Patients with hematological malignancy often undergo the most rigorous treatments, usually requiring long inpatient stays at tertiary referral centres far removed from friends, families and everyday life. The treatment for some malignancies is palliative, although aggressive, from diagnosis and there can be a number of difficult symptom control problems all of which are covered in this book. This volume draws on the expertise of the hematologist who is vital if the patient is to have optima care and provides practical advice in an easily accessible form so that the book can be read and referred to on the ward, or before a domiciliary visit.

Specialists in palliative care and oncology settings, working in the acute sector and in hospices, will find this book invaluable. It will also appeal to consultants as well as specialist registrars, clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners in palliative care, oncology and hematology.
