Effective communication with patients suffering from cancer and their relatives is essential for providing the best possible standards of care. This practical guide will help you to improve your ability to recognize and respond to the physical, psychological, and spiritual problems which cancer patients experience. For the first time in one volume, practical guidelines which have proven efficiency over years in clinical practice are presented. Real dialogues illustrate a clear model of eliciting, assessing, and responding to patients' needs and concerns with an emphasis primarily on the skills and strategies needed for effective communication between health professionals and patients trying to adapt to a fear-provoking diagnosis and an uncertain future. The book also provides invaluable guidance on how to deal with your own emotional responses to the challenges faced in working with seriously ill people. Everyone who cares for cancer patients will benefit from the sympathetic yet practical advice offered in this book.

Industry Reviews

`This book is not expensive and is very easy to read. It does not claim to give all the answers, but it certainly would help anyone dealing with patients to think about where they fail to communicate. It would be a suitable gift for a team member who needs to develop a little insight.' Ilora Finlay, University of Wales College of Medicine, The Lancet, Vol. 345, April 1995 `a practical and thought provoking little book ... would be ideally used in a group tutorial in which the topics could be discussed in more depth' Frances Calman, British Medical Journal, Volume 310, May 1995 `Professor Faulkner and Dr Maguire have developed multidisciplinary workshops for teaching communication skills. Their considerable experience and expertise gained from these workshops are condensed in this short guide. Clear guidelines are offered to help professionals in a variety of clinical situations ... a helpful resource to medical and nursing teachers ... I would recommend this book to any doctor or nurse who is thinking of working with, and caring about, patients with cancer.' David Jeffrey, Course Organiser, Worcester Vocational Training Scheme for General Practice `this book is different and well worth reading ... This book will be of value to all those involved in the care of patients with cancer and other life-threatening disease. In addition, it should be read by those planning the curriculum for postgraduate courses in most specialties.' Paul Millard, European Journal of Palliative Care, Volume 2, Number 2 `Professor Faulkner and Dr Maguire have developed multidisciplinary workshops for teaching communications skills. Their considerable experience and expertise gained from these workshops are condensed in this short guide. For those who have attended a Faulkner and Maguire workshop, this book will be a useful refresher. It will also be a helpful resource to medical and nursing teachers.
