Supportive care for the renal patient (2nd Ed.) Supportive Care Series Series

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Chambers E. Joanna, Brown Edwina, Germain Michael

Couverture de l’ouvrage Supportive care for the renal patient
Supportive Care for the Renal Patient Second Edition provides a comprehensive, evidence-based overview of supportive care for the nephrology patient. An international group of contributors emphasise the continuum of palliative care from the time of diagnosis through to end-of-life care and the issues surrounding withdrawal of dialysis. The book addresses the psychological impact of the disease, the importance of involving the patient in making decisions about their care, ethical considerations, the role of the family and the multidisciplinary team. This new edition includes two new chapters on conservative management of advanced kidney disease (AKD) and dialysis in the very elderly. The chapters covering non pain symptoms, advance care planning, quality of life, psychological and psychiatric consideration and end-of-life care have also be completely revised to include new evidence and current thinking. This book will be of particular interest to palliative care practitioners, nephrologists, who increasingly need to know more about palliative care, nurse practitioners, dialysis nurses, social workers, dieticians, and psychiatric consultants.
