Anthropology of Dying Book Review:

Mira Menzfeld explores dying persons’ experiences of their own dying processes. She reveals cultural specificities of pre-exital dying in contemporary Germany, paying special attention to how concepts of dying ‘(un)well’ are perceived and realized by dying persons. Her methodological focus centers on classical ethnographic approaches: Close participant observation as well as informal and semi-structured conversations. For a better understanding of the specificities of dying in contemporary Germany, the author provides a refined definition catalogue of adequate terms to describe dying from an anthropological perspective.

Elsevier Essentials Geriatrie Book Review:

Für alle Nicht-Geriater, die sich mit dem Thema Altersmedizin vertraut machen möchten, ohne zu tief einzusteigen, hält ELSEVIER ESSENTIALS Geriatrie genau das richtige Wissen bereit. Kurze Kapitel, Tabellen, Algorithmen, Kästen z.B. zur Evidenz, Merkekästen u.v.m. machen es dem Leser leicht, die Inhalte zu bewältigen und Zusammenhänge schnell zu erfassen. Geriatrische Patienten stellen für alle in der hausärztlichen Versorgung tätigen Ärzte eine große Herausforderung dar. Häufig treten mehrere Erkrankungen gleichzeitig auf, was die Diagnostik und Therapie erschwert. Bei der Betreuung dieser Patienten geht es oft um eine komplexe Langzeitversorgung, deren Ziel vor allem der Erhalt der Selbstständigkeit und der Lebensqualität ist.

Exercise Energy Balance and Cancer Book Review:

​​ While it is well established that the worldwide pandemic of overweight and obesity has profound effects on promoting cancer, it is now recognized that an alternative aspect of energy balance, namely physical activity and exercise have significant beneficial effects on all aspects of cancer across the spectrum from prevention through treatment and extending through survivorship. Moreover, salutary effects of physical activity and exercise extend across the age span from youth to old age and occur at all stages of cancer extending into palliative care. While the effect of physical activity and exercise on cancer may be partially mediated through obesity control, it is clear that considerable research is required and is ongoing at both the molecular and clinical levels to better understand the associated mechanisms and to develop optimal exercise strategies. This volume will contain chapters on the effect of exercise on biological pathways in tumor growth, state art exercise strategies and cutting edge research focused on different cancers and patient groups. It will provide an important volume in this series on energy balance and cancer and a basis for ongoing research, experimental approaches and application of evidence based practices to clinical care for patients with cancer.​

Psycho Oncology Book Review:

This book examines in detail the psychosocial impacts of cancer and its management, explaining the relevance of psycho-oncology during all stages from diagnosis and treatment through to cancer survivorship and rehabilitation and end-of-life care. This new edition has been revised throughout to reflect the latest knowledge and places particular emphasis on patients’ perspectives and what professionals can learn from patients. Readers will find information on a variety of psycho-oncological interventions, and detailed attention is paid to quality of life and patient-reported outcomes (as key benchmarks for successful coping) and to the fear of progression during and after therapy. Entirely new chapters focus on the psychological impact of individualized therapies in oncology, communication skills training, medical risk communication, and current research approaches in psycho-oncology. Written by leading experts in the field, the book will serve as a valuable resource for all health care professionals who work with patients and their relatives in the field of psychosocial cancer care and oncology.

Hope and Grace Book Review:

Conventional coping strategies can be pushed to their limits when people find themselves in situations of suffering, illness, and dying. Moved beyond their everyday consciousness, individuals often have spiritual experiences of grace and encounters with the transcendent or the divine. The author shows how care providers can support patients in their suffering and how they can recognize patients' spiritual experiences. Explaining different types of experiences of transcendence such as seeing angels or feelings of otherness and presence, this book will be of valuable use to professionals working in palliative and spiritual care, such as spiritual caregivers, therapists, nurses, and physicians. The book entails a new approach to spiritual care which opens a space of hope wherein grace may happen even amid pain, suffering, illness and dying.

Cancer Related Fatigue Book Review:

Cancer-related fatigue (CrF) is increasingly recognized as a significant problem for patients with cancer at all stages, including those undergoing therapy and in remission. In fact, studies have shown that CrF causes patients more distress than pain, nausea, or vomiting and yet fatigue is still often undertreated and rarely studied. However, several new treatments such as are being investigated to determine the most effective ways to manage this debilitating symptom and improve patient quality of life. Cancer-Related Fatigue will provide a concise overview of this condition, with an evidence-based discussion of diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management.

Psychosocial Palliative Care Book Review:

One of the most challenging roles of the psycho-oncologist is to help guide terminally-ill patients through the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of the dying process. Patients with cancer, AIDS, and other life-threatening illnesses are at increased risk for the development of major psychiatric complications, and have an enormous burden of both physical and psychological symptoms. Concepts of adequate palliative care must be expanded beyond the current focus on pain and physical symptom control to include the psychiatric, psychosocial, existential, and spiritual aspects of care. The psycho-oncologist, as a consultant to or member of a palliative care team, has a unique role and opportunity to fulfill this promise of competent and compassionate palliative care for those with life-threatening illnesses. Psychosocial Palliative Care guides the psycho-oncologist through the most salient aspects of effective psychiatric care of patients with advanced illnesses. This handbook reviews basic concepts and definitions of palliative care and the experience of dying, the assessment and management of major psychiatric complications of life-threatening illness, including psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic approaches, and covers issues such as bereavement, spirituality, cultural sensitivity, communication and psychiatric contributions to common physical symptom control. A global perspective on death and palliative care is taken throughout the text, and an Appendix provides a comprehensive list of international palliative care resources and training programs.
