Front Cover
Chapman & Hall, Mar 23, 1995 - Medical - 287 pages
The central focus of this book is the awareness of the dying patient's humanity as a living being with physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised and updated and new research has been added throughout. The result of these changes is to present a current view of palliative care, recognising the value of the multi-professional health team and new medical technology.
