The subject of this book A Practical Guide to Rehabilitation Oncology is now recognized as an integral and vital component of oncology, which concerns all our knowledge of the causation, prevention and treatment of the serious diseases which have been designated 'cancer' for many centuries. Mr. Raven is widely recognised as a leading authority both on the study of cancer and on the care of patients with these malignant diseases. He brings his personal experience gained during many years to this important subject. This book gives a detailed description on the rehabilitation requirements of oncology patients and provides descriptions of the techniques used in their assistance. The first chapters cover the theory and practice of rehabilitation oncology, the importance of counseling and the design of centres. The following chapters deal with patients suffering from various malignant diseases and their specific rehabilitation requirements. The book ends with descriptions of education and training in rehabilitation oncology and the importance of continuing treatment of patients with uncontrolled cancer and the care of the dying patient.
