Oxford University Press; 2nd Edition
A source of knowledge that is simple to navigate, The Oxford American Handbook of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and Supportive Care; 2nd edition (PDF) covers the day-to-day management of patients who require palliative and hospice care. The table of contents is organized in a way that is consistent with the core curriculum established by the American Board of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. As a result, it is able to fulfill the educational and clinical information requirements of students, residents, fellows, and nurse practitioners. The content is condensed, evidence-based, and topically-focused, and it is accompanied by copious tables, algorithms, and clinical pearls. In this revised and updated second edition, new chapters have been added on medical marijuana, grief and bereavement, and physician-assisted suicide. In addition, the entire book has been brought up to date to include the National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care Clinical Practice Guidelines.
