Palliative medicine is the medical care provided for people who have a life limiting illness or condition. It encompasses both the physical symptoms a person may experience but also the psychosocial, emotional, and ethical issues that may arise.

Now in its fourth edition, Palliative Medicine: A Case-Based Manual walks clinicians through the management of the most common situations found in palliative medicine, from diagnosis and managing symptoms through to grief and bereavement. Using real patient case scenarios and an easy-to-read
question and answer format, it gives students and medical professionals an accessible, evidence-based entryway to gain the skills and knowledge needed to provide high quality palliative and end of life care to patients and their families.

This new edition has been fully updated to cover the latest guidance, including new chapters dedicated to medical cannabis, opioids, grief and bereavement, and wider issues including palliative care in the community, structurally vulnerable populations, and public health.

Written by over 50 experienced palliative care clinicians and educators, this book will be a welcome guide for palliative care workers, medical and nursing students, and medical professionals of any specialty where palliative needs might arise.

Palliative Care Nursing of Children and Young People 1st Edition

 Nursing, Palliative Medicine  Comments Off on Palliative Care Nursing of Children and Young People 1st Edition
Apr 032022
 

“Children’s palliative care is an evolving specialty and as such our knowledge base cannot remain static. This book constantly challenges the reader to critically analyze their own practices and beliefs within an evidence-based framework and as such makes a valuable contribution to the growing body of knowledge on this important subject.” – Susan Fowler-Kerry, in the Foreword. This book caters for readers from different working environments and levels of experience. It is ideal for paediatric nurses with no specialist palliative care knowledge, and also for palliative care nurses with no specialist paediatric experience. Other healthcare professionals and therapists working with children, young people and their families will also find this book invaluable. It will also be ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate health and social care students, and professionals involved in children’s hospices, community services and charity groups. “This book captures not just the rapidly evolving evidence base, but also as many current developments as possible and applies them in a meaningful way to the care of infants, children, and young people living with life-limiting illness, and their families. It offers an overview of contemporary issues and helps to stimulate the type of dialogue that can bring about the actions that will make a real difference for the children, young people and families in our care.” – Rita Pfund, in the Preface.

Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing (Oxford Textbooks in Palliative Medicine) 5th Edition

 Nursing, Palliative Medicine  Comments Off on Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing (Oxford Textbooks in Palliative Medicine) 5th Edition
Nov 162021
 

The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing remains the most comprehensive treatise on the art and science of palliative care nursing available. Dr. Betty Rolling Ferrell and Dr. Judith A. Paice have invited 162 nursing experts to contribute 76 chapters addressing the physical, psychological,
social, and spiritual needs pertinent to the successful palliative care team. Organized within 7 Sections, this new edition covers the gamut of principles of care: from the time of initial diagnosis of a serious illness to the end of a patient’s life and beyond.

This fifth edition features several new chapters, including chapters on advance care planning, organ donation, self-care, global palliative care, and the ethos of palliative nursing. Each chapter is rich with tables and figures, case examples for improved learning, and a strong evidence-based
practice to support the highest quality of care. The book offers a valuable and practical resource for students and clinicians across all settings of care. The content is relevant for specialty hospice agencies and palliative care programs, as well as generalist knowledge for schools of nursing,
oncology, critical care, and pediatric. Developed with the intention of emphasizing the need to extend palliative care beyond the specialty to be integrated in all settings and by all clinicians caring for the seriously ill, this new edition will continue to serve as the cornerstone of palliative
care education.

Oxford Textbook of Palliative Care for Children (Oxford Textbooks in Palliative Medicine) 3rd Edition

 Palliative Medicine  Comments Off on Oxford Textbook of Palliative Care for Children (Oxford Textbooks in Palliative Medicine) 3rd Edition
Nov 152021
 

The importance of palliative care for children facing life threatening illness and their families is now widely acknowledged as an essential part of care, which should be available to all children and families, throughout the child’s illness and at the end of life. The new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Care for Children brings together the most up to date information, current knowledge, evidence, and developments of clinical practice in the
field.

The book is structured into four sections. ‘Foundations of Care’ describes core issues, the foundations on which paediatric palliative care is based. ‘Child and Family Care’ looks at different aspects of psychological, social, and cultural care for the sick child or young person, and their family. These chapters cover the time course of the illness, around the time of death and support for the bereaved family. ‘Symptom Care’ focuses on the uses of medication, specific symptoms, and their
management. Finally, ‘Delivery of Care’ examines practical approaches to care in different environments and the needs of clinicians.

Two new editors join the team from Canada and South Africa, reflecting our aims to contribute towards the development of care for children across the world, and to be a resource for both experienced clinicians and those new to the field.

Comprehensive in scope, exhaustive in detail, and definitive in authority, this third edition has been thoroughly updated to cover new practices, current epidemiological data, and the evolving models that support the delivery of palliative medicine to children. This includes two new chapters, looking in detail at ‘Decision Making’ and ‘Perinatal Care’, and a new section highlighting the emerging importance of ‘Palliative Care for Children in Humanitarian Crises’. This book is an essential
resource for anyone who works with children worldwide.

Internal Medicine Issues in Palliative Cancer Care Illustrated Edition

 Internal Medicine, Oncology, Palliative Medicine  Comments Off on Internal Medicine Issues in Palliative Cancer Care Illustrated Edition
Apr 212021
 

Patients with advanced cancer may develop a number of clinical complications related to tumor progression or a variety of aggressive treatments. The majority of these patients are elderly, often with multiple co-morbidities that require appropriate assessment and management. In the
palliative stage of their disease, patients undergo a progressive transition from active acute care to community-based hospice care. This transition requires modification in the diagnostic tests, monitoring procedures and pharmacological treatments to adjust them to the palliative and short-term
nature of the care. Internal Medicine Issues in Palliative Cancer Care looks at internal medicine through a prognosis-based framework and provides a practical approach to maximizing comfort and quality of life while minimizing aggressive investigations and therapies for patients with life-limiting
disease. Forty-six common internal medicine conditions are organized into nine clinical categories: pulmonary, cardiovascular, nephrologic and metabolic, gastrointestinal, hematologic, infectious, endocrine, rheumatologic, and neuro-psychiatric. This evidence-based resource is ideal for educating
clinicians delivering palliative care to cancer patients in acute care facilities about complex internal medicine problems, decision-making regarding diagnostics and therapeutics which require a good understanding of state-of-the-art internal medicine and palliative care principles.
