Palliative Care Consultations in Haemato-oncology is the first book in a new international, multi-contributed series aimed at providing practical, clinical guidance on how to deal with difficult symptoms related to specific cancer sites. Patients with haematological malignancy often undergothe most rigorous treatments, usually requiring long inpatient stays at tertiary referral centres far removed from friends, families and everyday life. The treatment for some malignancies is palliative, although aggressive, from diagnosis and there can be a number of difficult symptom-controlproblems all of which are covered in this book. This volume draws on the expertise of the haematologist who is vital if the patient is to have optimal care and provides practical advice in an easily accessible form so that the book can be read and referred to on the ward, or before a domiciliaryvisit.
