Description - Cancer in Adolescents and Young Adults by Daniel Kelly
There is a growing interest in the needs of adolescents and young adults in response to the forthcoming NICE guidelines on Supportive Cancer Care for Adults, and similar guidelines in preparation by the Department of Health for Adolescents. Cancer in Adolescents and Young Adults is a practical guide to cancer care in adolescents and young adults. The first section examines cancer in adolescence and the impact of diagnosis on adolescence. The second section focuses on the experience of cancer and ongoing care needs i.e. 'life during cancer'. The final section examines the consequences of cancer by concentrating on recovery, rehabilitation and/or end of life issues i.e. 'life after cancer.'
