Occupational therapy in oncology and palliative care
The range of services available to people suffering from acute cancer or any life threatening illness has changed dramatically over the past five years. Care is now concentrated on maintaining clients in their own homes by symptom control and home care support. This book encourages occupational therapists to develop analytical skills and problem solving abilities in assessing the most appropriate care solutions.
