This practical and concise book aims to assist health professionals and the general reader alike to understand the impact of cancer and those it affects. It provides information about how to support patients through the cancer journey by paying careful attention to their concerns and how to handle them. The book clearly describes the psychological processes that may occur when someone learns they have cancer, including their emotional reaction. It describes in detail the skills that can be used to manage situations such as breaking bad news. Case material is used throughout to illustrate the situations typically encountered by health professionals. Tips are given to help people learn the skills themselves and successfully integrate them into their practice. The book provides an invaluable resource for anyone who has contact with people with cancer, including health and other helping professionals and the general reader.

This is an important book. It deals in a detailed, well–informed and approachable way with difficult issues. It offers much–needed help to health care workers who want to communicate sensitively with cancer patients. Enlivened by vignettes which illustrate each point, it is wise, humane and practical. I commend it strongly to everyone who needs to understand and talk about cancer to those who have the disease.Miles Little, Director, Centre for Values, Ethics and the Law in Medicine, University of Sydney

I welcome this book which should become the standard text for undergraduates and postgraduates in the humanization of modern medicine. At last we have two texts that can stand side by side, Communication in Cancer Care and C: Because Cowards Get Cancer Too [by John Diamond], the heads and tails of the humane practice of oncology. Michael Baum, Emeritus Professor of Surgery and Visiting Professor of Medical Humanities, University College London
