    Quality of Life: From Nursing and Patient Perspectives, Third Edition is a comprehensive text that offers a unique perspective on quality of life by reflecting the voices of patients and families receiving or having received care for cancer. It is an ideal reference for oncology nursing students and oncology nurses in a variety of settings, including inpatient units, outpatient clinics, ambulatory care centers, cancer centers, research centers, home care agencies, and hospices. Topics explore evolution of quality of life in oncology, theories and conceptual models, life methodological and measurement issues, clinical implications, cancer survivorship, and quality of life stories by patients and families.
