Hospice Care for Children

by Ann Armstrong-Dailey

Hospice Care for Children Synopsis

Children with life-threatening and terminal illnesses- and their families- require a unique kind of care to meet a wide variety of needs. This book, now in its third edition, provides an authoritative source for the many people involved in the care of dying children. Written by leading authorities in pediatrics and palliative medicine, this comprehensive resource emphasizes practical topics and covers the entire range of issues related to the hospice care from psychological stress to pain and symptom management. The text has been fully updated and includes an international perspective chapter and a chapter written by Children's Hospice International with detailed all-inclusive care plans.

Hospice Care for Children Press Reviews

As one of the few such comprehensive books focused on this population, it is an essential addition to the library of all who care for these children and their families. It would be especially useful as a review for those in the field and as a source of information for those entering the field. * Doody's *
