“This textbook, Radiation Oncology inPalliative Cancer Care, represents the full evolution ofradiation therapy, and of oncology in general. ( ... ) [It] isan acknowledgment that palliative radiotherapy is now asub-specialty of radiation oncology. This formally makes palliativeradiotherapy a priority within patient care, academic research,quality assurance, and medical education.” – Fromthe Foreword by Nora Janjan, MD, MPSA, MBA, National Center forPolicy Analysis, Dallas, TX, USA

Palliative Medicine is the professional medical practice ofprevention and relief of suffering and the support of the bestpossible quality of life for patients and their families,regardless of the stage of the disease or the need for othertherapies. The most common cause for palliative care referral isterminal cancer, and a large proportion of those referrals includepatients who will need palliative radiotherapy during the course oftheir disease. Still, there are barriers to coordinated carebetween radiation oncologists and palliative care physicians thatdiffer from one country to another. Until now, one overarchinglimitation to appropriate concurrent care between the specialtiesacross all countries has been the lack of a comprehensive yetconcise reference resource that educates each of the specialtiesabout the potential synergistic effects of their cooperation. Thisbook fills that void.

Review:

“This is an excellent book that addresses a crucial aspectof radiotherapy in a way that I have not seen before. It is conciseand easy to digest, but also packed with information that will helpguide healthcare professionals in their practice. It would beuseful for palliative care clinicians and medical oncologists, butis of particular use as a reference text to radiation oncologistsand their trainees.”  (European Journal of PalliativeCare, 21 April 2014)
