The first reference of its kind, "Supportive Oncology," by Drs. Davis, Feyer, Ortner, and Zimmermann, is your practical guide to improving your patients' quality of life and overall outcomes by integrating palliative care principles into the scope of clinical oncologic practice at all points along their illness trajectories. A multidisciplinary editorial team, representing the dual perspectives of palliative medicine and supportive oncology, offers expert guidance on how to effectively communicate diagnoses and prognoses with cancer patients and their families, set treatment goals, and manage symptoms through pharmacological therapies, as well as non-pharmacological therapies and counselling when appropriate. The complete contents are available.


"This is a very thorough review of the medical literature in diverse topics in supportive oncology, ranging from treatment of allergic or dermatologic chemotherapy reactions, to sexual function and intimacy after cancer, to spirituality assessment and discussing difficult matters. The best part of this book is the extensive review of the literature on a broad array of topics. It is also a good reference for researchers looking for proper measurement tools. This is the most comprehensive supportive oncology book I have seen in terms of the number of topics addressed. In particular, the sections on management of chemotherapy-associated adverse effects were particularly helpful." - Maxwell T Vergo, BS, MD(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine), Excerpts from Doody's review service
