Fatigue in Cancer provides a comprehensive review of the key issues involved in the research and practical application of current evidence and best practice guidelines for addressing cancer-related fatigue. An international group of contributors draw together core topics relating to this complex area of cancer management, focusing on issues of definition, patho-physiology, treatment related variables and the psychological, social and emotional impact on patients, families and carers. Critical reviews of practical management strategies for both adults and children are included, as are the current approaches to the measurement of cancer-related fatigue in clinical and research contexts. The book contributes a multi-disciplinary overview of a problem increasingly overlooked by cancer scientists, researchers, and clinicians.
This book demonstrates the considerable capacity of cancer-related fatigue to impact on quality of life. Its multi-disciplinary focus and consideration of prioritised areas of future research will ensure that it will prove invaluable for all health professionals and researchers in oncology and palliative care.

. . . a well-written book on a widely overlooked issue . . . the main aspects of cancer-related fatigue are well covered and I read the chapters with interest and curiosity . . . this is a book that I strongly recommend to students, general practitioners and, in particular, to oncologists, and last but not least to patients living with cancer, their families and friends.
. . . worthy, scientifically-founded . . . will do a lot to reinvigorate clinicians who have tired of fatigue and help get this complex symptom out of the too-hard baskcet.
