Palliative Care: A Patient-Centered Approach (Patient-Centered Care)


By (author): Geoff Mitchell

Series Editors: Moira Stewart, Judith Belle Brown and Thomas R Freeman As the population in western cultures ages, more people suffer chronic, ultimately life-limiting diseases and medical professionals need to be equipped to cope with the ever growing pressure of palliative care. This book gives guidance on how to approach patients with life limiting illness. While the problems most people present to the doctor appear relatively straightforward, a whole person approach to understanding the complex interaction between the person, their illness and their environment should lead to a more complete consideration of the illness and better health outcomes. For issues of palliative care, such an approach is essential to identify and meet the many needs of desperately ill people. Palliative Care offers a fresh look at the management of patients. With international, evidence-based contributions, the book suggests practical and challenging ways to care for the dying. It is ideal for all healthcare professionals working in palliative care, General Practitioners and medicine and healthcare students.

Features and Management of the Pelvic Cancer Pain


By (author): Marco Cascella, Arturo Cuomo, Daniela Viscardi

This book focuses on the features of pelvic pain in the different cancer diseases, the pain assessment tools, as well as the pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches. Pelvic cancer pain is a common and debilitating symptom, and pain control is a one among the main therapeutic goals throughout the duration of the disease. Because pelvic cancer pain due to primitive cancer, recurrence or metastasis is a complex clinical pathology, no single technique is often guaranteed to produce a complete pain relief. Thus, there are many treatment options, but in most cases a correct approach to pain control should be provided by a multidisciplinary team under the responsibility of a pain specialist coordinating several professionals. This book will aid several figures of practitioners, like anesthesiologists, oncologists or surgeons, in making the correct decisions in individual patients affected by cancer pain due to pelvic diseases.

Management of Advanced Disease, Fourth edition (Hodder Arnold Publication)


By (author): Polly Edmonds, Nigel Sykes, John Wiles

The fourth edition of this, the ‘first’ textbook of palliative care, continues to provide a concise, but authoritative, guide to the provision of palliative care. The text has been thoroughly revised and reorganized throughout to reflect the recent pace of change in this rapidly moving field.

Coverage is comprehensive, ranging from symptom control through to legal and ethical issues, with emphasis throughout on practical guidelines and advice. The introduction of mini-contents lists and key points, and increased use of tables and explanatory line figures, has improved the user friendly quality of the text, and the reader will be able to ‘dip-in’ to the book whenever it is needed and access information quickly.

Palliative care has now become firmly established beyond malignant conditions, and this is reflected fully in this new edition which includes issues specific to AIDS, neurodegenerative disorders, progressive lung conditions, end-stage renal disease and cardiac failure. Other improvements include alphabetical re-organization of the symptom control section, increased coverage of communication and psychosocial issues and spiritual care, and a widened discussion of ethical concerns.

Retaining its St Christopher’s roots through the experienced editorial team, the multiprofessional nature of palliative care is reflected in the choice of contributors from a wide range of disciplines.

Palliative physicians, oncologists, general practitioners, nurses and other health professionals caring for patients with advanced, progressive diseases will continue to find this an invaluable handbook to be referred to often in the clinical setting.
