Palliative Medicine: A Case-Based Manual

Neil MacDonald

In line with much of today's medical teaching, the authors of this unique book have used a series of cases to illustrate critical points in palliative medicine. The case outlines are linked to learning objectives throughout-the case discussions are used to illustrate the desired attitudes, skills and knowledge base outlined at the beginning of each chapter.
In all, thirty symptom problems and psychosocial issues are discussed, including a number of symptoms not commonly considered in other textbooks, such as sleep disorders. The comprehensive section devoted to psychosocial factors in palliative medicine contains an excellent chapter on ethics, as well as chapters on cost containment and cultural issues, in addition to the more commonly encountered psychosocial problems.
