Additional Book Details

This book helps nursing and healthcare students to prepare for the challenges of working with the increasing number of patients requiring palliative care, so that they can work in partnership with patients and their carers, providing care that is compassionate, practical and backed up by the latest evidence. Delivering palliative care can be emotionally challenging and the book focuses on supporting healthcare staff, allowing them to provide the care that is needed.

Key features include:

* case studies in every chapter, helping students to practically work through difficult scenarios

* reflective activities that assist readers in thinking critically about their care and how to improve it

* a holistic approach to palliative care that includes family, carers and interprofessional work

* up to date theory and policy.

Palliative Care in Nursing and Healthcare is suitable for undergraduate nursing students and allied health students and practitioners.

 Michelle Brown is Senior Lecturer at the University of Derby.
