Since the publication of the first edition of The Medical Care of Terminally Ill Patients, the field of palliative care has progressed significantly, both socially and scientifically.

Special attention is given to pain management, management of symptoms, care of advanced cancer patients, and care of patients with nonmalignant diseases. More than 100 new references, a new list of abbreviations, and tables with new drugs and dosages provides valuable information.

Dr. Enck places great emphasis on enhancing the quality of life while addressing the most common symptoms of terminal illness.

From the Publisher:

"How can we do a better job of caring for our patients at the end of life? A good start would be to buy and read Robert Enck's Medical Care of Terminally Ill Patients. This concise, easy-to-read book tells you what you need to know. The first chapter estimates duration of survival in patients with cancer, Alzheimer disease, and motor neuron diseases and is alone almost worth the price of the book, but the text holds so much more."—Annals of Internal Medicine

"Dr. Enck does an excellent job of summarizing the relevant research. . . The author clearly has wide experience in dealing with terminal care and gives a sensitive and thorough review of the complex medical care issues involved in producing a humane death."—Family Medicine

About the Author:

Robert E. Enck, M.D., is a clinical associate professor in the Department of Medicine at The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Care.
