Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lisa Stepp, PhD, RN, APN, AOCN, CRNH (Private Practice)
Description: This second edition has been greatly anticipated. With the rapid growth and changes in the healthcare industry, ongoing information is necessary for clinicians to remain current. The issues addressed in this book encompass group dynamics, teamwork, and funding.
Purpose: The purpose is to address the challenges of developing and maintaining terminal care support teams in the hospital setting. Although the concept of terminal care teams is widely accepted, more information is needed regarding the logistics of making them effective.
Audience: This text is directed toward hospital administrators and healthcare professionals. The editors are not only leaders in the field of terminal care, but also have practical experience in dealing with day-to-day issues.
Features: The major topics addressed include support for the need of palliative care teams, development of the team, and facilitating change. Sample guidelines and forms found in the appendixes provide treatment options. The drugs mentioned in these guidelines, however, are not all available in the United States. Adaptations will need to be made for the guidelines to be useful to U.S. clinicians.
Assessment: While most of the advancements being made in terminal care teams have been developed in the United Kingdom, much of this same information can be translated into delivery of care in the United States. The presented principles of teamwork, project facilitation, and management issues are universal in their scope. Therefore, this text is a welcome addition to the body of work that addresses terminal care teams.
