Derek Doyle's name is known to everyone involved in palliative care, not just through his clinical skills and long-term commitment to the field but also as a brilliant communicator and educator. Domiciliary Palliative Care is a practical handbook for everybody who cares for people with far-advanced disease in the community. It includes every new treatment as well as a unique insight into the development of the modern hospice movement. It provides health care workers with practical advice on how to control pain effectively, how to help patients recognize and fulfill their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, and how to help support their families. Everyone involved in health care provision in the community will, at some time, become involved with the care of the terminally-ill. This book is written for them -- providing uniquely comprehensive, compassionate and insightful guidelines to allow the reader to deal with this potentially harrowing area with confidence and sensitivity.
