A specialty cookbook filled with nutritious, great tasting recipes for those whose eating options are limited by chewing and swallowing difficulties. All of the recipes focus on enhancing flavor, presentation, texture, aroma, and color. The Dysphagia Cookbook is a specialty cookbook filled with nutritious, great-tasting recipes for those whose eating options are limited by chewing and swallowing difficulties. All of the recipes focus on enhancing flavor, presentation, texture, aroma, and color, for there are many other products that supply nutritious calories or liquids but give little attention to these quality-of-life concerns. Included in The Dysphagia Cookbook: A classification of S, G, or P indicates consistency levels of soft, ground, or puréed. Flexible instructions provide suggestions for adapting recipes to accommodate increasing levels of chewing and swallowing difficulties. There are many recipes with an international flavor that do not use difficult-to-find ingredients. Ready-made products that have been tested for thickness, flavor, ease of chewing, and ease of purchase and preparation are listed. A section on must-have kitchen supplies helps cooks deal with the new ways of preparing food for people with swallowing difficulties. The approach is practical rather than clinical. The ritual of eating gives shape and meaning to our lives. Many meals are consumed in a pleasant atmosphere with the company of loved ones and friends in lively conversation. The Dysphagia Cookbook is an attempt to restore this joy and dignity to those whose pleasure in this area has been limited to one degree or another.

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.

Safe Swallowing With Dysphagia: A Puree Cookbook For Dysphagia-Related Lifestyles was compiled for people facing dysphagia who need basic easy-to-make puree recipes. Although recipes do not indicate calorie counts or have a nutrition breakdown, they do provide a resource to be able to get into the kitchen and prepare dysphagia-appropriate meals. These are the recipes I prepared for my mother. They helped her. I wrote this puree cookbook as a promise to her and a labor of love, in an effort to help others. In addition to puree recipes, I've included information about pureed foods and beverages for dysphagia, a listing of online resources for dysphagia, a list of support groups and a list of online resources for conditions that can be affected by dysphagia. Also included is information with lists of dysphagia's possible causes, signs, and symptoms. There is an extensive bibliography of sources that I used in the research and writing of this puree cookbook. This book is great! I love how the author uses her own experiences to help families comprehend this very overwhelming condition known as dysphagia. Sharon's personal knowledge helps families to understand the day to day difficulties in providing nourishing home made purée meals. Lisa Klein, M.S., CCC-SLPSanta Monica, California
