Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials
"This is a wonderful reference for healthcare providers from various disciplines. The book is devoted to psychosocial topics which is its strength because the patient's psychosocial needs can be lost in the fast-paced, short-staffed, high-tech world of healthcare."
-- Marilyn Sample, B.S. and M.S. (Indiana State University) Doody's Review
The book is written for nurses (with various degrees and certifications) and for other healthcare professionals who provide care for cancer patients and their family members/significant others. The editors and authors of chapters are credible authorities.
