Currently, there is no comprehensive source of information available to non-specialist physicians and nurses providing end-of-life care for advanced cancer patients at a level between specialist oncology texts and nursing texts. Two eminent physicians from one of the world's foremost cancer centers have drawn together a remarkable team to provide a handbook which covers the full range of problems non-specialists will encounter. This highly accessible text covers general principles in oncology, each of the primary tumors, and management of specific symptoms and syndromes.
