Palliative care is an essential element of our health care system and becoming increasingly significant amidst an aging society and organizations struggling to provide both compassionate and cost effective care. Palliative care is also characterized by a strong interdisciplinary approach. Nurses are at the center of the palliative care team across settings and populations. The second volume in the HPNA Palliative Nursing Series, Physical Aspects of Care: Pain, Nausea and Vomiting, Fatigue and Bowel Management, provides an overview of the principles of symptom assessment and management for symptoms including: pain, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, obstruction, and ascites. The content of the concise, clinically-focused volumes in the HPNA series prepares nurses for certification exams as well as quick-reference in daily practice. Plentiful tables, figures, and practical tools such as assessment instruments, pharmacology tables, and patient teaching points make these volumes useful resources for nurses.

The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing remains the most comprehensive treatise on the art and science of palliative care nursing available. Dr. Betty Rolling Ferrell and Dr. Judith A. Paice have invited 162 nursing experts to contribute 76 chapters addressing the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs pertinent to the successful palliative care team. Organized within 7 Sections, this new edition covers the gamut of principles of care: from the time of initial diagnosis of a serious illness to the end of a patient's life and beyond. This fifth edition features several new chapters, including 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. 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. 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.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Patient Care Guide for Clinicians is intended as a practical reference for clinicians caring for ALS patients, and will bring together the collective wisdom of those at the forefront of patient-oriented research and practice. This will be an official project of the ALS Research Group (founded by Dr. Mitsumoto and currently headed by Dr. Bedlack), and provides both an evidence-based and experience-based guide to multidisciplinary ALS care. The book will begin with a brief review of current concepts of ALS including diagnostic criteria, genetic and sporadic subtypes, epidemiology, co-morbidities and prognosis. Individual chapters then tackle the gamut of specific issues that arise in caring for people with ALS, from breaking the news all the way through end-of-life care and bereavement. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Patient Care Guide for Clinicians is divided by disciplines, mirroring the way large multi-disciplinary ALS clinics operate and includes pertinent material for each member of the care team. Each section will has one primary author from that discipline (an expert ALSRG member), who will review the specific issues they have seen arise and review the evidence-based options presented for each issue. Each section will also has a group of secondary authors, other experts from the same discipline who offer counterpoints or other ideas about how to handle clinical problems (i.e. use of lipids and statins, screening for driving, etc.)—essentially what has or hasn't worked for them—thus capturing the variety of opinions across experts in the field and providing real-world care information that isn't available or documented anywhere else.
