This field manual was developed for visiting nurses or health facility-based nurses and physicians in Kenya to use when caring for women with terminal cervical cancer. It focuses on understanding cervical cancer, relieving the physical problems associated with it, and addressing social, emotional, and spiritual issues faced by women with terminal disease and their families. It offers the reader simple, practical advice on the drugs and techniques that are effective in the management of the most common problems confronting women and their families.
