MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Kidney Disease: From advanced disease to bereavement provides guidance to renal and palliative care professionals dealing with patients with advanced kidney disease, who are approaching end of life. The book describes the tools used to achieve a good death including advance care planning, symptom control law and ethics, recognizing dying, withdrawal of treatment, and a holistic approach to patient care. By using case histories, the book highlights how to facilitate good
communication between patients, families and their renal and palliative teams. There are also chapters on support for carers and bereavement.

Revised and updated, this new edition is written in a bullet point style to provide an indispensable guide to the day-to-day management of patient care. This pocketbook will be an essential guide for nephrologists, renal nurses, nephrologist trainees, and doctors and nurses working in palliative care.
