Description:
Cancer care today often provides state-of-the-science biomedical treatment, but fails to address the psychological and social problems associated with the illness. All patients with cancer and their families should expect and receive cancer care that ensures the provision of appropriate psychosocial health services. This book recommends actions that oncology providers, health policy makers, educators, health insurers, health planners, researchers and research sponsors, and consumer advocates should undertake to ensure that this standard is met.
