Abstract:

In response to changing environmental and social circumstances surrounding death, hospice has emerged as an important component to health care. In turn, the demand for adequately trained personnel has grown. Hospice Care explains the history and nature of hospice care and serves as an introduction to the skills and knowledge necessary for practitioners, counselors, and volunteers in this increasingly important field of health care. This informative volume emphasizes the nonmedical role of hospice, which seeks to enable patients to live the final period of their lives with as much dignity and as little pain and suffering as possible. From organizational and policy issues to working with patients and their families, grief, and bereavement, Hospice Care describes the tasks and knowledge practitioners need to adequately serve, assess a patient's needs, develop treatment plans, and evaluate progress. This volume also includes model fieldwork assignments.
