Nearly half of the text concerns the difficult task of controlling the myriad symptoms from which dying patients suffer. As would be expected from a text on dying, the chapters on pain control and management are exceedingly thorough and informative. Several options for alleviating pain are offered that might not have been considered in a more conventional textbook of medicine.
The text also includes excellent chapters on palliative care for symptoms other than pain, including gastrointestinal, respiratory, neurologic, and dermatologic problems.
Chapters on interventional radiology and palliative surgery are eye-opening for those who think of palliative care simply as giving morphine to patients at home. I found the well-thought-out discussion on how to break bad news to patients and their families particularly helpful. Authorship input from health care providers from around the globe ensure a perspective that is truly universal.
Input from nonphysician health care personnel makes the book useful for nurses, social workers, and others who provide services to the dying patient.
These sections make the text a must for any hospice team. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles of holistic palliative care and a comprehensive summary of the pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to symptom management. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles of holistic palliative care.
