About this title:

The Hospice Companion is a guide to the processes of care during the intensive, interpersonal experiences of hospice work.

This resource highlights the mission and values of modern-day hospices through the individual and combined efforts of the field’s most valuable asset: the hospice professional. Easy to navigate, this clinical-decision support tool for carers of people with life-limiting illnesses allows for personal and professional growth and a deeply gratifying sense of accomplishment as they proceed in the all-important work of caring for the dying.

The third edition features a current guide to clinical processes and symptom management, providing hospice professionals with a concise summary of changes that have influenced clinical practice over the past few years. Moreover, feedback from hospice social workers has been incorporated into the section on personal, social, and environmental processes, and guidance on integrative and non-pharmacologic interventions has been added.

Special features:

  • Formatted to "think through" common clinical problems and conditions
  • Covers all common social and clinical conditions and symptom complexes confronting carers of patients experiencing advanced illness

"...concisely written, mainly as bullet-point lists, and presents the relevant information in a useable form. Importantly, attention is paid to psychosocial matters as well as the medical." - IAHCP, Roger Woodruff
