While this book focuses on the psychosocial care of adults, some content is appropriate to the care of parents, carers and loved ones of cancer patients and survivors. This book offers numerous practical strategies for assessing and managing common concerns and identifies and extends health professionals existing skills, develops new skills, identifies key resources for health professionals for each topic, provides clinical case examples throughout that highlight learning objectives and contains photocopiable Resource sheets that support the practical application of the content.
