A unique "mentor in a pocket" handbook covering the most emotionally-trying experience nurses face
From a world recognized expert on care for the dying, comes the first pocket-sized reference for generalist nurses on palliative care. This handy, portable reference assists nursing in dealing with one of the most emotionally trying situations they face in clinical practice.
Part of McGraw-Hill's Nurse to Nurse series, this title includes PDA download of the entire text, vignettes, nursing alerts that provide just-in-time information on complex or particularly important aspects of patient care, and clinical pearls which provide the benefit of other nurses' valuable experience in dealing with end-of-life care. Coated flex-binding repels stains.
The new Nurse to Nurse series is specifically designed to simulate the teaching experience nurses learn best from: trusted mentors carefully explaining what they must do in specific clinical situtions. Written in a consistent, single-author voice, this series brings the wisdom and experience of some of the foremost experts to non-specialist nurses in clinical care.
