Rehabilitation

  • Ronald W. Raven

Abstract

The rehabilitation of patients who are affected in so many different ways by oncological diseases is a subject of increasing importance throughout the world. The problems of the enormous number of patients with crippling disabilities justify a place of high priority in the work of the caring professions. In addition to the relief of suffering, rehabilitation gives fresh hope to patients and families to dispel the fear and despondency they so often experience. The tremendous therapeutic advances of recent decades are resulting in an ever increasing number of cured patients for rehabilitation and resettlement.
