It offers examples of approaches to dilemmas and emotional issues commonly faced by those working in palliative care; encourages professionals to think laterally, to be creative in their use of core skills, and to use their life skills and experience to change the focus of their interventions; moves the emphasis away from the medical model to the emotional and spiritual influences on quality of life; and offers guidelines and demonstrates solutions, based on theory and experience, to problems encountered on a day-to-day basis by patients and those coming into contact with them. This book will be useful to occupational therapists, nurses, physiotherapists, doctors and others working in this field."--BOOK JACKET." ;
