Psychosocial Care of Cancer Patients: A Health Professional's Guide to What to Say and Do

Description
This book extends psychosocial care guidelines by providing numerous practical strategies for assessing and managing common concerns. Health professionals’ existing skills will be identified and extended, new skills will be developed and useful resources shared. Key resources for health professionals are identified for each topic covered. Clinical case examples throughout the book highlight learning objectives. Handouts, in the form of Resource sheets, can be quickly photocopied and support the practical application of the content for daily practice. The book focuses on the psychosocial care of adults, however, some content will be appropriate to the care of parents, carers and loved ones of paediatric cancer patients and survivors. Concerns that arise most frequently in clinical practice are addressed. Detailed information on less common concerns or interventions that tend to be delivered by specialist services (such as the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder or sexual dysfunctions) are beyond the scope of this book, although suggestions for further reading materials are provided.
