Evidence-Based Practice of Palliative Medicine is the only book that uses a practical, question-and-answer approach to address evidence-based decision making in palliative medicine. Dr. Nathan E. Goldstein and Dr. R. Sean Morrison equip you to evaluate the available evidence alongside of current practice guidelines, so you can provide optimal care for patients and families who are dealing with serious illness.
- Confidently navigate clinical challenges with chapters that explore interventions, assessment techniques, treatment modalities, recommendations / guidelines, and available resources – all with a focus on patient and family-centered care.
- Build a context for best practices from high-quality evidence gathered by multiple leading authorities.
- Make informed decisions efficiently with treatment algorithms included throughout the book.
‘The symptom management chapters are especially thorough and easy to translate into clinical decision-making, and the medical chapters present useful algorithms for clinical care. Each chapter also contains a summary of take-home points along with a useful list of references. An online version is also accessible with purchase of the book.
Evidence-Based Practice of Palliative Medicine combines a comprehensive yet concise approach to evidence-based palliative care. It is easy to navigate and references relevant, up-to-date data; it will be a useful tool both in the office and in the field for current palliative care practitioners.’ – Bonnie Chen, MD(Harvard Medical School) Doody 5 stars!
