As long-term cancer survival becomes a widely-shared experience, the quality of life of people living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis is increasingly important. Optimising the prevention and treatment of any psychiatric consequences of certain tumours and treatments is now central to high-quality cancer care. Biological Psychiatry of Cancer and Cancer Treatment provides the reader with expert guidance on how to prevent, detect and manage the 'organic' psychiatric disorders experienced by people with cancer. Containing 13 chapters on topics from 'Surgery and Radiotherapy', and 'Hormone and Cytokine treatments' to 'Clinical Psychiatric Assessment of Patients with Cancer' this unique resource offers readers with fully up-to-date and high-quality information on how to enhance the quality of life for patients living with, and beyond cancer. Offering a unique approach to oncology and psycho-oncology, Biological Psychiatry of Cancer and Cancer Treatment is an invaluable resource for academic psychiatrists, liaison psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, Oncologists, neuro-oncologists, palliative medicine doctors and drug development scientists.
