This Book Palliative Care Nursing is written by Susie Wilkinson, Margaret O’Connor, and Sanchia Aranda. Palliative care has traditionally been defined as “. . . specialized medical care of dying people, with the aim of maximizing quality of life and assisting families and caregivers during and after death” (PCA 1999). The long tradition of the hospice movement attests to a commitment to caring for people who are dying. More recently, palliative care has evolved into an active, practice-based discipline aimed at improving the care of those facing the end of their lives. Palliative care now begins before the traditionally understood phase of death care and has become a multidisciplinary practice involving interactions with other relevant parts of the health care system.
The success of the first edition of Palliative Care Nursing suggests that the original goal of developing a book that would make palliative care accessible to nurses in all health settings has been achieved. This second edition has been completely revised, rewritten, and redesigned to ensure that the book remains a reliable and useful practice guide for nurses, especially those new to palliative care and those working in other areas of health where palliative care skills are necessary. required.
