9780195068979: Handbook of Psychooncology: Psychological Care of the Patient with Cancer

Written for oncologists, nurses, and mental health professionals, this comprehensive volume is the first to cover the full range of psychological, social, and psychiatric problems facing cancer patients, their families, and health care staff. The Handbook provides detailed guidance on the psychological care of cancer patients at all stages of the disease. It offers lucid accounts of such clinical issues as how patients cope with cancer; the psychological problems associated with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy; the psychosocial problems associate with specific tumors; normal adaptation patterns; common psychiatric complications and their treatment; the management of pain, nausea, and vomiting; and sexual problems. In addition to reviewing the key studies in these areas, it gives full coverage--complete with "how-to" guidance--of the unique problems of childhood cancer and cancer in the elderly; AIDS; how oncology staff cope with the stresses of care; anc common difficulties arising from legal and ethical considerations. The final sectin outlines research issues in assessing quality of life and psychosocial function and offers an evaluation of their relative value. The product of a decade of clinical experience and reearch at the Psychiatry Service of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, this is a carefully integrated, well-balanced work that includes many tables which will be particularly useful in teaching and lecturing.

Review:

"The Handbook of Psychooncology certainly lives up to its name. It is a truly useful handbook for physicians nurses, and many other health professionals who work with cancer patients and their families....It is exceptionally well organized, and references to particular topics can be readily found....It should become required reading for psychiatrists, psychologists, oncologists, nurses, social workers, and anyone else who becomes involved in the care of cancer patients and their families....This unique volume is the first of its kind to contain such a comprehensive range of useful and timely information regarding the psychological care of the cancer patient. It is destined to become a classic." --The Psychiatric Times

"This volume represents the most comprehensive work to date on the increasingly important area of psychosocial oncology. It presents a clear, knowledgeable, comprehensive view, and, as such, belongs in the library of any professional whose interest lies in, or touches on, the total care of the person with cancer." --Journal of the National Cancer Institute

"While the handbook offers little that is new for those with considerable background in the literature of cancer care, much is worth repeating, and it is useful to have it under one cover. What is repeated is done with clarity and brevity and in a highly readable style. Those without such background would benefit from having this book avalable as a first source. The book is well edited and a very worthwhile addtition to what is by now a large body of literature." --Journal of the American Medical Association

"Well-written and comprehensive. . . .all those involved in the psychological care of patients with cancer should have access to a copy." --British Journal of Psychiatry

"Remarkable book....Superb organization, depth, and comprehensiveness....The volume is beautifully edited.... A major contribution to both the medical and psychiatric literature....Will become a classic reference source.... An essential contribution to every medical school and hospital library as well as the personal libraries of physicians and other medical and mental health professionals." --General Hospital Psychiatry

"By bringing together and organizing so much information into a single text, Holland and Rowland have provided a significant contribution that is likely to be useful to a range of professionals and students alike. Although this volume is written as a reference source, it is a well-written, highly readable book that can be read straight through or used by individuals in search of information on a specific aspect of psychooncology. It is remarkable how little repetition exists in a text of this size." --Contemporary Psychology

"Comprehensive....An encyclopedic, in-depth volume."(Source?)

"This volume, edited by two of the major contributors to the field, is the definitive text to date in this increasingly acknowledged specialty area which overlaps with consultation-liaison psychiatry, behavioral medicine, and health psychology. It is encyclopedic in coverage and broad in scope....Essential for all who care for and conduct psychosocial research with cancer patients. Oncologists and oncology nurse clinicians will also find it quite helpful. It is extremely well edited and well referenced and is perhaps best used as a reference text....The editors should be congratulated for their pioneering efforts as this volume clearly stands alone as a comprehensive treatise on this still new and evolving field known as psychooncology." --Jon A. Levenson, MD, Columbia University, Psychosomatic Medicine

"The Handbook of Psychooncology certainly lives up to its name. It is a truly useful handbook for physicians nurses, and many other health professionals who work with cancer patients and their families....It is exceptionally well organized, and references to particular topics can be readily found....It should become required reading for psychiatrists, psychologists, oncologists, nurses, social workers, and anyone else who becomes involved in the care of cancer patients and their families....This unique volume is the first of its kind to contain such a comprehensive range of useful and timely information regarding the psychological care of the cancer patient. It is destined to become a classic."--Psychiatric Times

"The most comprehensive work to date on the increasingly important area of psychosocial oncology. It presents a clear, knowledgeable, comprehensive view, and, as such, belongs in the library of any professional whose interest lies in, or touches on, the total care of the person with cancer."--Journal of the National Cancer Institute
