    Book details


This revised and updated edition of Palliative Medicine is about the care of patients with advanced cancer and AIDS. While the primary focus is the treatment of pain and other medical problems experienced by patients, the importance of psychosocial and non-physical aspects of suffering, and the need for a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to care, are stressed. The principles of palliative care are discussed, as are ethical issues such as physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. The section on HIV infection and AIDS has been expanded with particular emphasis on the gastroenterological and neuropsychiatric features associated with this illness.
