The Oxford American Handbook of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and Supportive Care; 2nd edition (PDF) is an easily-navigable source of information about the day-to-day management of patients requiring palliative and hospice care. The table of contents follows the core curriculum of the American Board of Hospice and Palliative Medicine; thus meeting the educational and clinical information needs of students; residents; fellows; and nurse practitioners. Succinct; evidence-based; topically-focused content is supplemented by extensive tables; algorithms; and clinical pearls. This updated 2nd edition includes new sections on medical marijuana; grief and bereavement; and physician-assisted suicide; and has been updated throughout to incorporate National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care Clinical Practice Guidelines.
