Supportive Cancer Care: The Complete Guide for Patients and Their Families
In 54 chapters, cancer care specialists Ernest and Isadora Rosenbaum, plus some 60 experts -- each a leading authority in his or her field -- answers every possible question concerning a patient's physical, psychological and spiritual needs. Over half of the book is devoted to the mind and body, covering such wide-ranging topics as treatment, the will to live, stress, depression, spirituality, nutrition, therapeutic massage and sexuality. Almost one-third of the book concerns itself with medical and social support services, including important financial aspects of cancer care. The book also covers death, bereavement and facing the future without a loved one.
