A Physician's Guide to Pain and Symptom Management in Cancer Patients, third edition

This comprehensive guide to managing pain and other symptoms for people with cancer has helped tens of thousands of patients and families. Designed for busy practicing clinicians, A Physician's Guide to Pain and Symptom Management in Cancer Patients provides primary care physicians, advanced practice nurses, internists, and oncologists with detailed information and advice for alleviating the stress and pain of patients and family members alike. Drawing on the work of experts who have developed revolutionary approaches to symptom management and palliative care, as well as on the lessons learned from patients and their families during her thirty years as a teacher and clinician, Dr. Janet L. Abrahm shows how physicians and other caregivers can help patients and families heal emotionally even as the disease progresses.

The third edition includes updates to medications and clinical stories, and features two new chapters: "Working with Patients’ Families" and "Sexuality, Intimacy, and Cancer." New lessons from palliative care and hospice care can help patients, their professional caregivers, and their families support each other every step of the way.

About the Author

Janet L. Abrahm, MD, is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a member of the Department of Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital.

Reviews

This is my current favorite reference book, the one that I loan to fellows when I'm on service. This is my "go-to" book when I'm stumped, uncertain, or want to double check my thinking about symptom management.

- Alex Smith - GeriPal - Geriatrics and Palliative Care Blog

A well-researched textbook that drawers on lots of aspects of symptom management in palliative care.

- Nursing Times Review

In this third edition Dr. Abrahm expands on her excellent coverage of symptom management and includes new chapters to address complex psychosocial topics.
