OverviewPalliative care is a philosophy of care that provides a combination of disease-modifying and supportive, compassionate therapies intended to alleviate pain and other symptoms - while addressing the emotional, social, cultural, and spiritual needs of patients and families who are experiencing life-threatening progressive illness. This third edition of "Palliative Care Nursing" provides newly updated content, knowledge, attitudes, skills, and cutting-edge teaching and learning strategies to achieve the AACN End-of-Life nursing competencies. The text is organized to emphasize the importance of a holistic perspective and an understanding of the patient and family as individuals with diverse spiritual and cultural needs and expectations. With this book, readers will learn to understand and attend to the more abstract needs of patients and their families, with an emphasis on the value of complementary holistic modalities in promoting health, wholeness, and wellness even as death approaches.
