Edited by renowned nursing experts, and written by a dynamic team of internationally known authorities in nursing and palliative medicine, this book covers the gamut of principles of care from the time of initial diagnosis of a terminal disease to the end of a patient's life and beyond.

The text is distinctively developed to highlight the nurse's vital role as part of an integrated palliative care team. Various care settings are discussed including the hospital, ICU, home care, and hospice.
Chapters focus on the practical aspects of nursing care, including symptom assessment, patient teaching, family support, psychosocial aspects of palliation, and spiritual care.

New to the fourth edition are chapters on the National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care Guidelines, palliative care of veterans, palliative care in rural settings, disaster situations, palliative care in Eastern Europe, and palliative care in the Philippines.
