    Book details


The third edition of this successful book has been updated to incorporate the latest advances in the treatment of the terminally ill and includes a new section on non-malignant diseases and home care. Based on many years of clinical practice and research at St. Christopher's Hospice in London, the first teaching hospice, Living with Dying presents practical, balanced advice on the general ethical and medical principles of caring for dying patients and considers the details of the control of pain and other symptoms. The book discusses how doctors and other professionals can support the patient and family by sharing the truth with them and understanding their emotional suffering. This will continue to be an invaluable handbook for all family practitioners, hospice physicians, nurses and other health professionals. Patients and their relatives will also find this a compassionate source of factual information.

This useful book offers GPs an easy-to-read, practical guide to palliative care. It is written with clarity and compassion and will not fail to stimulate and motivate the reader. I enjoyed read Living With Dying and would recommend it to anybody involved in palliative care. It may be only a small book of some 60 pages, but it delivers a big message. (Dr Alan Duke, Doctor)in six very readable chapters, offers guidelines on the management of those symptoms commonly encountered in palliative care ... it is a readable volume and would certainly be a very valuable addition to the primary health care team library (Mari Lloyd-Williams, Progress in Palliative Care)
