Abstract

This comprehensive, evidence-informed text provides clinicians, researchers, policy-makers and academicians, with content to inform and enrich the guidelines recommended by the National Consensus Project and the National Quality Forum Preferred Practices. It is designed to meet the needs of health social work professionals who seek to provide culturally sensitive biopsychosocial-spiritual care for patients and families living with life-threatening illness. Edited by two of the leading social work clinician-researchers in the US, this text serves as the definitive resource for practicing clinicians and fulfils the need for social work faculty who wish to complement general health care texts with information specific to palliative and end-of-life care.
