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.

Review:

This book provides an excellent introduction to the principles and practices of palliative care in health care.  The  case studies and opportunities for reflection allow the practitioner to develop an understanding of how palliative care principles can be applied in practice settings for a variety of life limiting conditions. (Dr Susan Ashton, Programme Leader, School of Nursing and Allied Health, Liverpool John Moores University)

Reading ‘Palliative Care in Nursing and Healthcare’ has been a great pleasure. The content is extremely relevant to today’s practice along with being beautifully presented.  The book is full of case studies and reflection points which deepens understanding on the subject.  I would highly recommend that all healthcare professionals read this excellent and informative book.

(Helen Kearney, Registered Adult Nurse 2015-10-12)

This book aims to present the essence of palliative care for undergraduate students in nursing and allied health; my opinion was that it would not do any harm to make medical students read it as well. It covers care and compassion, the holistic approach, care planning, carers’ needs, the interprofessional team, communication, ethical issues, end of life care, death and dying and, finally, self-care. There are numerous illustrative case scenarios and lists of reflection points. Good stuff. (Roger Woodruff)
