From The CriticsReviewer: Sally Ling, M.D.;FACP(University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine)
Description: This book comprehensively yet concisely presents pertinent information for clinicians managing end of life/palliative care of adult and pediatric patients with malignant and nonmalignant diseases.
Purpose: This handbook is intended to provide access to important information quickly and succinctly for clinicians providing palliative needs. Since many physicians providing such care may not have received formal training in palliative medicine, this book will be very useful.
Audience: The target audience includes hospital and community based clinicians providing palliative care to adult and/or pediatric patients. The authors and contributors are dedicated to the field of palliative medicine.
Features: The book comprehensively covers topics from ethical issues, to effective communication strategies, to symptom specific management, to care of specific populations with nonmalignant disease, to complementary therapies, to the role of allied health professionals and spiritual care.
Assessment: This is a very practical handbook packed with useful information that will no doubt enhance clinicians' delivery of care to their patients.
