Psycho-oncology - psycho-social oncology
Modern oncology can no longer be considered without the inclusion of psycho-oncology. As a branch of oncology, on a holistic basis, it concerns multi-professional teams, the patient, their family and others involved in the treatment. This manual from the Tumour Centre provides in-depth details on symptoms, diagnostics, interventions and care options.

Concrete advice for psycho-oncological care
This manual on psycho-oncology has been completely revised and supplemented, and is now available in its 3rd edition. Written by a multi-professional team of authors, it provides many suggestions for daily practices in psycho-oncological care. It includes the areas of cancer and the psyche, care structures in psycho-oncology, symptomatology in psycho-oncology, diagnostics in psycho-oncology as well as interventions and psycho-oncology in palliative care.
