Collaborative Practice in Palliative Care
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after September 21, 2021
Collaborative Practice for Palliative Care explores how different professions work collaboratively across professional, institutional, social and cultural boundaries to enhance palliative care.
Analysing palliative care as an interaction between different professionals, clients and carers and the social context or community within which the interaction takes place, it is grounded in up-to-date evidence, includes global aspects of palliative care and cultural diversity as themes running throughout the book and is replete with examples of good and innovative practice. Drawing on experiences from within traditional specialist palliative care settings like hospices and community palliative care services, as well as more generalist contexts of the general hospital and primary care, this practical text highlights the social or public health model of palliative care. Designed to support active learning, it includes features such as case studies, summaries and pointers to other learning resources.
This text is an important reference for all professionals engaged in palliative care, particularly those studying for post-qualification programmes in the area.
