Description

This sensitively written book offers a wealth of insight and practical advice for nurses in every specialty and setting providing end-of-life care.

Nurses will learn how to address patients' spiritual concerns, ensure that physical needs are met, help patients maintain their dignity, and provide emotional support to grieving families. Nurses will also learn how to cope with their own feelings about dying and end-of-life care.

Coverage includes stages of dying, nursing interventions for palliative care, pain control, alternative therapies, physical and psychological signs of grieving, and more. Vignette insights from the well-known end-of-life specialist Joy Ufema offer advice on giving compassionate care.
