9780071545273: End-of-Life-Care: A Practical Guide, Second Edition

The most thorough text available on providing patients and families with quality end-of-life care

"The study/learning questions at the end of each chapter make this book an excellent resource for both faculty who wish to test knowledge, and individual learners who wish to assess their own learning....The book is well written and easy to read. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service

End of Life Care: A Practical Guide offers solution-oriented coverage of the real-world issues and challenges that arise daily for clinicians caring for those with life-limiting illnesses and conditions.

End of Life Care: A Practical Guide includes specific clinical guidance for pain management and other common end of life symptoms. The second edition has been made even more essential with the addition of chapter-ending Q&A for self assessment and board review, new coverage of multicultural medicine, an increased number of algorithms to assist decision making on complicated clinical, legal, and ethical issues.

Six sections walk you through the complexities of caring for patients who are nearing the end of life:

  • Preparing Patients for End of Life
  • Management of Symptoms
  • Diagnostic and Invasive Interventions
  • Ethical Dilemmas
  • Special Populations
  • Diversity

No other text better assists physicians and other clinicians in providing patients near the end of life with support, guidance, and hope in the face of “hopelessness” than End of Life Care: A Practical Guide.
