Abstract

Most nurses, at some stage of their career, will be called on to care for a dying person and so it is important that all nurses have the knowledge, skills, compassion and wisdom to care for people near the end of life. Palliative Care Nursing is a reliable and useful practice guide which will be relevant to nurses in all settings. This book is committed to the principles inherent in the practice of palliative care – respect, dignity, excellence, advocacy, equity and accountability. The individual chapters are authored by an international team of nurses who offer evidence, research and strategies for providing the finest approaches for palliative care within different situations and environments.
