"You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you'll win, no matter what the outcome." Hunter Doherty "Patch Adams" MD

A broad and experienced team, including medical oncologists, psychologists and allied healthcare professionals, worked together to produce this practical guide to patient-centred and integrated cancer care. It provides a compendium of best practice, including 25 case studies to act as models for professionals to make decisions, either for individual patients or as the basis for policy across an organisation, planning area, region or country.

This guide is designed as a handbook for practising clinicians and professionals. It is also an excellent training tool, which will help new teams and clinical staff to align thinking, develop procedures, and adopt best practice.
