In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the multiple interrelationships between depression and various physical diseases. The WPA is providing an update of currently available evidence on these interrelationships by the publication of three books, dealing with the comorbidity of depression with diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Depression is a frequent and serious comorbid condition in people with cancer, which has a major negative impact on their quality of life and long-term prognosis.

Depression and Cancer is the first book devoted to the interaction between these important disorders.  It examines various aspects of this comorbidity and describes how the negative consequences of depression in cancer could be avoided or ameliorated, given that effective depression treatments for cancer patients are available. World leaders in psychiatry and oncology summarize the latest evidence on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, screening and recognition, impact on treatment adherence and survival, pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, clinical management, and cultural and public health implications of depression in persons with cancer.

Its practical approach makes this book ideal for all those involved with the management of these patients: psychiatrists, psychologists, oncologists, general practitioners, and cancer and mental health nurses.
