This established and well-regarded Guide describes the management of patients with advanced disease. Its foundation is a clinical decision-making approach in which the patient's information guides the professional's approach to appropriate management. This Sixth Edition has been fully updated reflecting the latest advances in knowledge and care of cancer and non-cancer patients with advanced disease including children and people with severe communication difficulties. Sections on symptoms other than pain and emergencies are set out alphabetically with the Emergencies section now located at the end of the book for ease of reference. The Drug Information section has been extensively updated and colour and design refinements introduced throughout for greater clarity and emphasis. All references continue to be categorised to make their evidence base clearer. Maintaining the high standard set by previous editions over the past quarter-century this continues to be the definitive guide to palliative care symptom relief for professionals in a wide variety of caring environments. From reviews of previous editions: 'An invaluable resource. Deserves to be on the library shelf of every palliative care service' INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE 'A must read for all healthcare professionals.'
