Evaluating Alternative Cancer Therapies
A Guide to the Science and Politics of An Emerging Medical FieldeBook - 1999
Rutgers University Press
In Evaluating Alternative Cancer Therapies, David Hess has interviewed the major opinion leaders in the alternative cancer therapy field - clinicians, researchers, patient advocacy leaders, and journalists - who explain their philosophy of evaluation, their therapeutic preferences, and the political and economic hurdles to getting the necessary research done. Both a guide to the guides and a survey of the field, this innovative book provides a framework for evaluation problems that clinicians and patients face - from patient needs and the quality of potential clinical care givers to research methods, proposed policy reforms, and the therapies themselves.
