About this title


The contributors to this volume make convincing cases that communication is an intrinsic element of cancer care and holds unique communicative challenges for older adults. Chapters in the first section focus on some aspect of how older adults deal with issues of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and how their unique identities play a role. Chapters in the second part shift attention to some of the more salient survivorship issues inherent in cancer communication research. Chapters in the third section raise a number of issues that seek to identify issues of cultural values, spirituality, and end-of-life to help patients cope with their internal strife.


...a collection of articles that is interesting, in part, because of the diversity of perspectives. On the whole these articles are well written and presented. Overall the reader may find a useful collection of articles, which are intended to provide a resource for those interested in increasing their knowledge or pursuing research in this field.
