Description

"This reference provides a comprehensive, pragmatic approach for physical medicine physicians; speech, occupational, and physical therapists; and nurses with cancer survivor responsibilities...Any cancer program with significant rehabilitation services will find this a useful addition to its library."

--Journal of the American Medical Association

"As the first true textbook dedicated to cancer rehabilitation, the editors have done an excellent job of organizing the topics and recruiting authoritative authors in the field of cancer rehabilitation. This book is a must-have for clinicians who wish to specialize in cancer rehabilitation."

--Doody's Reviews

"[T]his book is the only source to date to address the topics most pertinent to the emerging arena of cancer rehabilitation in one location. Each chapter highlights "key-points," for a quick overview and provides a thorough list of references for more in-depth study...This book is a milestone and must-have for anyone involved in the care of those with cancer."

--American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

“...Cancer Rehabilitation contains excellent accounts of cancer syndromes causing physical disability and pain, and well-done matched chapters that describe wider therapeutic approaches to help patients with these syndromes. Physical rehabilitation is covered in fine fashion. Cancer Rehabilitation provides an excellent source of wisdom on those issues…an oncologist will not find the concepts of pain, physical debility, and related therapeutic approaches so concisely and clearly discussed in many other texts. Cancer Rehabilitation: Principles and Practice meets a high standard in this area.”

--International Journal of Radiation Oncology * Biology * Physics., Vol. 78, No. 2, p. 636, 2010
