As a family member/caregiver I found two sections particularly helpful. The first was how to be a supportive family member (i.e. recognizing the stages of grief the patient and family experience) rather than isolating or shutting off the patient (which seems obvious, but when you are dealing with an angry/cranky person you're natural instinct is to leave them alone). The second was the information regarding pain and pain management. There is so much stigma regarding pain medication and fear of addiction that people suffer in pain unnecessarily.
For those reading this book as part of continuing education for psychceu, it's a straight forward question/answer test and the answers are easy to find. You'll also learn something along the way.
NANCY H.DAHM CERTAINLY HAS THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE TO PROVIDE HER READERS WITH IN-DEPTH INFORMATION AND THEREFORE GAVE ME PEACE OF MIND. NANCY PROVIDES ONE WHO HAS HAD CANCER OR LIVING WITH CANCER, WITH A PHILOSOPHY OF "LIVING" AND DYING WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE TREATMENT!
I HAVE FOUND THE BOOK AN INSPIRATION IN OVERCOMING MY FEARS AND STRESS WHICH CANCER ENTAILS. I RECOMMEND "MIND, BODY AND SOUL" WHOLE HEARTEDLY FOR ANY PERSON OR MEMBER OF A FAMILY THAT HAS A CANCER PATIENT!

This book is all you'll need and I recommend it highly.
