"Palliative Care Nursing is essential reading for nursing students, professional nurses and other health and social care professionals providing supportive and palliative care to those with advanced illness or who are towards the end of life. This third edition of the acclaimed textbook has been extensively revised and examines important research studies, key debates around care and strategies to advance palliative care nursing. In four sections, the book covers key elements of nursing practice towards the end of life: *Defining the palliative care patient *Providing palliative nursing care *Caring around the time of death *Challenging issues in palliative care nursing. Leading authors address contemporary issues and explore how to provide high quality person-centred palliative care, encouraging application to practice through exercises and case studies. Chapters completely reworked or new for this edition include those on communication, living with uncertainty, bereavement care, the costs of caring, nurses' decision-making and capacity, and palliative care worldwide." -- Publisher.
