Overview

When the Focus is On Care / Edition 1


Explaining how cancer patients can benefit from palliative care—care that addresses the psychological, social, and spiritual needs of the seriously ill patient—this book provides the information, support, and tools needed to cope and live well with cancer, even when the disease is not responsive to treatment. Written in a sensitive and conversational fashion, this book addresses questions about progressive illness, making informed decisions and getting good medical care, accessing supportive care resources, and managing symptoms and side effects. It discusses issues such as coping strategies, performing a life review and leaving a legacy, talking to loved ones about cancer and dying, and coming to terms with your mortality.
