There is a growing interest in rehabilitation in palliative care and this book aims to provide a better understanding of this concept, through listening to people with cancer’s experience of a rehabilitative care approach at a specialist palliative day care centre, as well as discussion around the literature and research in this specialist area. Central to the book is the research undertaken by the author between 2000 and 2002, using a phenomenological method to provide greater understanding of the phenomenon as experienced by the participants. People’s perceptions of both their symptoms and the rehabilitation that they received, as well as their attitudes and beliefs about that rehabilitation were explored. The relevance and benefits of the rehabilitative care approach were then identified using quality of life markers that were established during data analysis. This analysis and discussion should help shed some understanding about the complexity of rehabilitation in the context of palliative care and would be especially useful to Health Care Professionals working in this specialist field or anyone who maybe considering setting up rehabilitation programmes for people with cancer.
