Doctors and nurses involved in the care of cancer patients need clear, practical and up-to-date information and advice on the symptoms they encounter. In this book Robert Twycross provides the framework of knowledge enabling the clinician to develop a scientific approach to managing symptoms. The author draws on nearly a quarter of a century of personal clinical expertise in palliative care and his international experience to reflect current best practice. Symptom Management in Advanced Cancer expands and develops the author's previous work, and includes new material on psychological, neurological and haematological symptoms and on emergencies in palliative care. There is also an extended section on drug profiles.
