The ESMO Handbook of Rehabilitation Issues During Cancer Treatment and Follow-Up is intended primarily to be read by physicians working in the field of medical oncology. The aim of this publication is to provide key information in the form of a comprehensive and well-arranged handbook that will help physicians gain better understanding of the issues surrounding patient rehabilitation.

This kind of book is currently lacking in the field of medical oncology and is envisioned to be an important and useful new resource for medical oncologists. This volume deals with clinical topics such as pain, fatigue and gastrointestinal sequelae and also discusses other aspects such as social and financial issues and lifestyle changes.
