A Hospice Guide Book by Curtis E. Smith

When you or a loved one are diagnosed with a terminal illness, you wonder what can be done to make life easier and more meaningful during the remaining time on earth. In A Hospice Guide Book, author Dr. Curtis E. Smith shows how the concept of hospice, which emphasizes the important provisions of comfort care through the end-of-life journey, can help terminal patients die a comfortable, peaceful death with dignity.

A resource for families, patients, and health care providers, A Hospice Guide Book provides a thorough explanation of the hospice concept. It discusses

• the definition of hospice care and its origins;

• hospice fallacies, myths, and facts;

• alternative care modalities;

• the hospice team and its responsibilities;

• levels of care and treatment;

• pain and pain management;

• hospice residences;

• end of life care.

A Hospice Guide Book presents a plethora of information about hospice, enabling those who could become hospice patients the opportunity to receive the benefit of expert comfort care; pain control management; symptom control; and emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial support as they live with their terminal illness during the end-of-life journey and peacefully transition from this life to the next.
