This very accessible, straightforward book helps to allay those concerns and enables pre-registration students to prepare confidently for the challenges they will face when they are caring for dying patients and supporting their families. Each chapter is based on a different and realistic scenario - reflecting a range of circumstances - to demonstrate the essential generic knowledge and skills they need to develop, and draws out the important practical and theoretical issues students should consider and address if patients and their families are to receive the best possible care.

Written by two experienced palliative care lecturer/practitioners, and mapping closely to the NMC′s 2010 domains, the book is tailored to the needs of student nurses working with adult patients.

Review:

′I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! The chapters are clear and easy for undergraduate students to understand. The use of case studies in particular strengthens the book and brings the discussion into the real-life practice context′ -
Gillian Walton, Northumbria University

′The clear and straightforward writing style of this book makes it ideal for first year undergraduate students and those who have no experience of end of life care. The logical progression throughout each chapter helps readers to engage with the discussion′ -
Brigid Purcell, University of Huddersfield

"This book serves as a manual for total patient and family care at the end of life....Though the information has been provided by multiple other authors..., the strategies of delivery make this text unique and possibly more effective. A useful resource for new and seasoned end-of-life caregivers. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (J.S. St. Clair 2013-08-01)

The authors have extensive experience in palliative and end of life care and bring it to this inspiring book; they set out a clear process through  the end of life care journey and use excellent case studies throughout. A subject rarely covered in books such as these is sudden unexpected death, to which the authors devote a chapter. The discussion is thought provoking and it is an area of care students are likely to be required to consider and manage. I recommend this book to students and mentors who would like to explore end of life care in more depth.
(Diane Laverty Cancer Nursing Practice 2013-09-19)

...Its strengths lie in its readability, unpretentious language and its correlation to everyday nursing practice. The evidence base is strong, bang up to date and used wisely to support the pragmatic advice offered...This is a book worthy of success... (Robert Becker, Independent Lecturer in Palliative Care)

Book Description Sage Publications Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Students and newly qualified staff make up much of the workforce delivering end-of-life care but, because end-of-life care can be both technically challenging and emotionally demanding, it is an aspect of nursing that can cause considerable anxiety. This very accessible, straightforward book helps to allay those concerns and enables pre-registration students to prepare confidently for the challenges they will face when they are caring for dying patients and supporting their families. Each chapter is based on a different and realistic scenario - reflecting a range of circumstances - to demonstrate the essential generic knowledge and skills they need to develop, and draws out the important practical and theoretical issues students should consider and address if patients and their families are to receive the best possible care. Written by two experienced palliative care lecturer/practitioners, and mapping closely to the NMC s 2010 domains, the book is tailored to the needs of student nurses working with adult patients. It explores the importance of their role in end-of-life care and how this interfaces with the roles of other multidisciplinary professionals involved in the care of their patients. It will also be helpful to students of other health-care professions and support newly-qualified health-care professionals working in adult health. Seller Inventory # AAX9780857025487
