Overview

"This book introduces the medical student and junior doctor to the problems faced by patients with advanced diseases who need palliative care. Information is provided in an accessible, user-friendly and interactive way and covers the breadth of physical and non-physical symptom management. Multi-professional teamwork is addressed, as well as the role and support of families with consideration of the dilemmas and decisions that may be encountered by doctors around the end of a patient's life." Although intended primarily for students being taught and examined in palliative care, this book will also appeal to junior doctors, nurses and all those who need to know something about caring for the terminally ill. It provides the knowledge and opportunities to practice skills and consider the attitudes necessary to be able to care for the 'whole' patient with advanced terminal illness.
