Overview

Supportive Care for the Renal Patient(Supportive Care Series) by E. Joanna Chambers

This book provides a comprehensive, evidence-based overview of supportive care for the nephrology patient. An international group of contributors emphasize the continuum of palliative care from the time of diagnosis through to end-of-life care and the issues surrounding withdrawal of dialysis. The book addresses the psychological impact of the disease, the importance of involving the patient in making decisions about their care, ethical considerations, the role of the family and the multidisciplinary team.

This book will be of particular interest to palliative medicine and pain consultants; nephrologists; who increasingly need to know more about palliative care; nurse practitioners; dialysis nurses, social workers, dieticians, and psychiatric consultants.
