Women's Cancers: Pathways To Living
Pathways to Living
Smith J Richard, Delpriore Giuseppe
Taking patients through all aspects of cancer care, this book provides specific, accurate information on various tumour types and treatment modalities, surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and complementary therapy. Unlike many patient guides, it explores holistic health and wellbeing as well as psychological responses, recognising distress and the treatments and interventions to help.World-renowned surgeon Richard Smith, founder of Uterine Transplant UK, uses inclusive, accessible language as well as pictorial models of doctor-patient communication to describe all of the common gynaecological cancers, their epidemiology, staging and treatment. Speaking directly to the patient and her family, he discusses not only the medical but also the psychological, spiritual and religious aspects to coping and living with a cancer diagnosis.Written for patients and their families, this book will also be an invaluable resource for nurses, and medical and nursing students, working within the field of gynaecological cancers.All royalties from this book are being donated by the authors to Womb Transplant UK, Registered Charity no.1138559.
