"The Handbook of Communication and Cancer Care" is a major new compendium of state-of-the-art readings concerning the powerful influences of human and mediated communication to enable health care consumers and providers to get the most out of cancer care. An extraordinary number of communication issues must be considered in the conduct of cancer care, including gathering and interpreting relevant health information, eliciting coordination among interdependent patients, providers, and family members, and/or caregivers, and providing social support and promoting psychosocial adjustment. The contributors to this volume provide compelling analyses of the way communication enhances cancer care. It is important to gain a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in effective and appropriate communication with cancer patients across the continuum of cancer care from diagnosis to survivorship. The "Handbook" provides important insights into the ways health care consumers and providers can acquire and use communication to effectively confront cancer.
