Description:

How to live well with cancer--from diagnosis to its final stages The goal of palliative care is to help you and your family experience the best quality of life possible throughout the course of your disease by controlling pain and symptoms, relieving suffering, and enabling you to live your life as normal as possible. "When the Focus Is on Care: Palliative Care and Cancer" explains how you can benefit from palliative care. Written in a sensitive and conversational fashion, this book addresses your questions about progressive illness, making informed decisions and getting good medical care, accessing supportive care resources, and managing symptoms and side effects. It discusses coping strategies, performing a life review and leaving a legacy, talking to loved ones about cancer and dying, and coming to terms with your mortality. This book provides the information, support, and tools you need to cope and live well with cancer, even when the disease is not responsive to treatment.
