This evidenced-based book covers the prognostication and assessmentof relevant, advanced-illness clinical problems, the management of symptoms, and the physical and spiritual treatment of palliative patients in the emergency department through their last hours of living. Also included are chapters focusing on hospice care, communication techniques, and the legal and ethical issues of palliative care in the emergency department.

Recenzii

This is the only book of its kind, and fills a critical need
It was a pleasure to read this book, which taught me a number of things. There is a move afoot (at least in the USA) to allow trainees in Emergency Medicine to also train in Palliative Medicine, allowing the caring of the latter to be mixed with the technological expertise of the former, and probably unthinkable 25 years ago. As outlined in this book, there is a push for more appropriate treatment (in terms of holistic palliative medicine) for patients withlife-limiting disease, as well as identifying the much larger number of patients who present to the ED who are in need of/eligible for palliative care services. This all sounded like good news to me... Hopefully this book will be a useful resource and inspiration for people who work in ED. I would alsorecommend it to trainees in palliative medicine, as it provides a good picture of what is happening on the other side of the wall.
From the paramedic struggling with difficult and/or conflicting information in the home through the palliative care specialist trying to interface effectively with the emergency department, this user-friendly handbook offers practical help from experts in the interdependent fields of Emergency Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Medicine... This guide is a must-have resource for clinicians looking for concise, point-of-care information, and for hospitaladministrators working to address palliative care needs in emergency departments through best practice recommendations.
