Palliative Care


This book lays a clear foundation of knowledge for any nurse involved with palliative care. It focuses on the needs and perspectives of the patient, and seeks to give the reader a strong, broad understanding of how best to deliver full, rounded care. Covering the wide range of care provision in hospices, hospitals and patients' homes, the book draws widely from practice examples to explain and expand theoretical issues. Research evidence underpins each of the chapters while guided activities enable readers to reflect in a focused way on their experience and current practice. While recognising the importance of team work in providing good quality palliative care, the book unashamedly concentrates on the unique nursing skills and knowledge required for this demanding work. Covering key issues in palliative care nursing such as spirituality, sexuality, ethics, loss and grief, this book defines and develops palliative care as a key nursing specialty.A clear, broad-based approach offers a thorough introduction for the non-specialist nurse. Written and edited by an experienced team of nurses working in this field, grounding it in current practice. Learning outcomes listed at the start of each chapter aid learning and comprehension. Reflective practice activities and an outline of CPD is especially useful for students working independently. Case histories, recommended reading lists, and references provide a solid evidence base for clinically based practice and facilitate further study.Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect changes in policy direction. A new chapter on pain and symptom management. Revised content reflects the recent shift in the evidence base concerning spirituality. Includes psychosocial issues of loss for the patient, their family, and careers.
