Palliative Care For People With Cancer 2E by Jenny Penson
This text explains to nurses and other professionals caring for cancer patients how to assess, plan, implement and evaluate the care provided. The book offers a holistic approach, examining the physical, emotional, social and spiritual factors contributing to a patient's quality of life. The second edition has been updated and revised to take account of new drugs, treatments and trends and it includes new chapters exploring sexuality, standard setting, daily care and lymphoedema. The text is appropriate for practising nurses (hospital, community and hospice-based), students following ENB/post-basic cancer, terminal care and palliative care courses, and health visitors.
