Overview

Designated a Doody's Core Title!

Winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award

The second edition of this award-winning text provides the essential guide to achieving best practices in palliative care nursing. It offers a blend of holistic, spiritual, cultural, and humanistic caring coupled with aggressive management of pain and symptoms associated with advanced disease. With over 20 percent of the book covering pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic pain management, and with a focus on both clinical and holistic treatment, major figures in the field of palliative care nursing outline eleven specific skill competencies in this specialty.

Used as a resource in the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the National Cancer Institute, which has successfully trained thousands of nurse educators, and organized around the competencies in palliative care nursing developed by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, this book is an essential resource for both students and practitioners.

    New to the 2nd Edition:
  • Updated information in each chapter
  • New chapter on professional organizations and certification in palliative care nursing
