Description

Product Description

This comprehensive pocket-size handbook is the essential reference for clinicians and others serving patients with advanced or life-limiting illness. It offers up-to-date, relevant, and highly practical guidance to expertly meet the challenges of serving these patients and their families.

This user-friendly manual emphasizes the importance of honoring patients’ wishes throughout their medical journey while meeting their whole-person, often complex needs—from symptom management to attending to spiritual and emotional suffering—and always acknowledges the context of patients’ lives, including the needs of loved ones supporting them.

The layout makes finding information quick and easy, with alphabetically organized chapter headings and a detailed index. Organ-system-based chapters offer disease-specific, goals-of-care discussion guidance and reviews of etiology, signs and symptoms, assessment, and management—including standard treatment as well as palliative options.

Other chapters cover communication with patients and families, consultation with colleagues, and code status discussions, along with valuable subjects such as withdrawing life support, ethics, spirituality, physician-assisted death, and palliative options of last resort.

Readers will find practical management strategies for symptoms such as pain, nausea, dyspnea, and delirium. In addition, chapters on opioid use and dosing, and pharmacology of commonly used palliative medications, make this guide an invaluable resource.

I am a new Nurse Practitioner working in Palliative Care and absolutely love this book. The text is written in bullet points, a format I find very easy to use and remember and I can use it for a quick reference. It was introduced to me by a physician mentor in our practice. He loaned me his copy while he was on a leave of absence, and I bought my own when I found myself using it so much. It''s like a Bible for Palliative Practice. I would like to thank the author for such a valuable resource!

I just recently started Hospice and was feeling unsure of my practice as it is so different from my prior work in the hospital. This book has helped me close that gap. It has explanations of typical issues seen, interventions, and pearls of care with focus on how to educate family members. A lot of what I read in this book I have heard from my preceptors as well so I know it is spot on. I covered it in a clear protective cover to keep it nice since I use it so much and I bring it with me in my supply bag to each of my patients homes. Definitely worth the purchase.

This book has a wealth of information. The only complaint I would have is the print is smaller than I would like, however, it may just be my age! Otherwise, I read a little everyday and learn from it everyday. When I triage, I use it as a reference book. It’s not just a handy hospice reference. It goes deep into hospice and palliative medicine.

Font is too small for me to read comfortably
Reviewed in the United States on December 9, 2017
Sadly disappointed. The font is tiny, about 7-8 points, and light, that this book isn''t practical for me to use. I wish I had purchased the kindle version, but I don''t want to spend another $52.
