SUMMARY

Cancer: Palliative Care examines the nature of the care and support that can be provided to those in need of palliative care and their families. This covers not only the physical treatment, such as pain management, but also the psychological well-being of patients. Health workers, clinicians, specialist nurses and medical students will find a balanced and thoughtful overview of the subject which will be of value in managing patients and helping them to come to terms with their condition
