Caring for patients who have been diagnosed with terminal illness provides a challenge to all healthcare professionals, as confronting the possibility of death and discussing it openly and supportively with the patient and their family is not easy. To ensure death with dignity, patients need holistic care: practical, social, emotional as well as spiritual needs must be met. This new book by Hannah Cooke links all these areas to provide practical support and advice on areas such as choices of treatment (including the use of complementary therapies), pain control, counselling and religious beliefs. There is also a section on the care of the bereaved with a list of helpful organisations that can be contacted.
'When Someone Dies' will help nurses and other healthcare professionals implement a partnership of care that will ensure that their patients live until they die.
