Communicating with Cancer Patients

by John F. Smyth

Published in association with European Society of Medical Oncology, this volume is designed for trainee oncologists, oncology nurses, and those working with cancer patients on a day-to-day basis. Focusing on the “soft skills” required in communicating with patients, the book includes topics such as the aetiology of cancer, diagnosis and staging, and explaining the purpose of treatment, including chemotherapy, hormone treatment, and immunological and gene-based therapies. It also discusses patient support groups, monitoring remission, and relapse. The book is written by UK oncologists but has international application.
