Overview

Nine years have passed since the first edition of The Handbook of Psychiatry in Palliative Medicine was published. In that time, psychiatric or psychosocial palliative care has dramatically evolved; the net effect on palliative medicine has been transformative. Most doctors, palliative care experts or not, agree that palliation that neglects psychosocial dimensions of patient and family experience fails to meet contemporary standards of comprehensive care. While a focus on somatic issues has sometimes overshadowed attention to psychological, existential and spiritual end-of-life challenges, the past decade has seen an all encompassing, multi-disciplinary approach to care for the dying beginning to take hold.

The first comprehensive handbook of psychiatric palliative care, this new edition is fully updated, reorganized and expanded to include eleven new chapters. Written by internationally known psychiatry and palliative care experts, this book is truly an essential reference for all providers of palliative care including psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health counselors, oncologists, hospice workers and social workers. Each chapter has been updated to address new therapeutic modalities, approaches and research topics.
