New mesothelioma handbook now available

April 4, 2016

Dr-Helen-ClaysonThe new version of the popular JHMRF Mesothelioma Handbook is now available. Written by Dr Helen Clayson, a former GP and hospice Medical Director, who has been involved in the care of people with mesothelioma for over 30 years. Dr Clayson continues to work on research and education concerning asbestos-related diseases – including a training programme in Japan and an asbestosis project in India. She is a co-applicant on a National Institute of Health Research proposal to study the organisation and economics of care for mesothelioma in the UK. The handbook is based on her personal experience and research.

Dr Kate Hill, trustee said, “The JHMRF is pleased to continue to provide useful information to help those affected by mesothelioma. The new handbook has been written by Dr Clayson to provide straightforward information for patients, their families, non-specialist health care professionals and carers. It covers all aspects of the illness including clinical investigations, treatments, psychological and practical issues.”

Hard copies of the handbook can be obtained from The June Hancock Mesothelioma Research Fund by emailing a request to handbook@junehancockfund.org. Please remember to include your name, address and postcode.
