Review
 "Multiple contributors working in the US provide an overview of the
principles of cancer care and best practices for restoring function
andquality of life to cancer survivors in this reference for medical
professionals. Contributors come from various specialties
includingphysiatry, oncology, physical therapy, and occupational
therapy. Coverage progresses from primer level discussion of cancer
types and their assessmentand management, to identification, evaluation,
and treatment of specific impairments and disabilities that result from
both cancer and cancertherapy. Chapters are in sections on principles
of cancer and cancer treatments, evaluation and treatment of specific
malignancies, medical complications of cancer and their treatment, pain
in cancer, neurological and neuromuscular complications of cancer,
musculoskeletal complications of cancer, general topics in cancer
rehabilitation, specific diagnoses in cancer rehabilitation, and special
topics such as funding issues, public policy, and screening. Chapter
key point boxes summarize concepts at a glance. The art program offers
color and b&w photos, micro images,diagnostic images, and
illustrations." - Book News  "As the first true textbook dedicated to
cancer rehabilitation, the editors have done an excellent job of
organizing the topics and recruiting authoritative authors in the field
of cancer rehabilitation. This book is a must-have for clinicians who
wish to specialize in cancer rehabilitation."--Doody's Reviews  "[T]his
book is the only source to date to address the topics most pertinent to
the emerging arena of cancer rehabilitation in one location. Each
chapter highlights "key-points," for a quick overview and provides a
thorough list of references for more in-depth study...This book is a
milestone and must-have for anyone involved in the care of those with
cancer."--American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, July
2010   "I must, however, compliment the editors on their chapters
and emphasize that Cancer Rehabilitation contains excellent accounts of
cancer syndromes causing physical disability and pain, and well-done
matched chapters that describe wider therapeutic approaches to help
patients with these syndromes. Physical rehabilitation is covered in
fine fashion. Cancer Rehabilitation provides an excellent source of
wisdom on those issues an oncologist will not find the concepts of pain,
physical debility, and related therapeutic approaches so concisely and
clearly discussed in many other texts. Cancer Rehabilitation: Principles
and Practice meets a high standard in this area." -Int. J. Radiation
Oncology Biol. Phys., Vol. 78, No. 2, p. 636, 2010 (Doody's Reviews )
