Abstract

The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing is a comprehensive textbook on the art and science of palliative care nursing. Including new chapters on advance care planning, organ donation, self-care, global palliative care, and the ethos of palliative nursing, each chapter is rich with tables and figures, case examples for improved learning, and a strong evidence-based practice to support the highest quality of care. The book offers a valuable and practical resource for students and clinicians across all settings of care. Developed with the intention of emphasizing the need to extend palliative care beyond the specialty to be integrated in all settings and by all clinicians caring for the seriously ill, this new edition will continue to serve as the cornerstone of palliative care education. The content is relevant for specialty hospice agencies and palliative care programs, as well as generalist knowledge for schools of nursing, oncology, critical care, and pediatric.
