Pädiatrische Palliativversorgung – Grundlagen (3rd ed.) (Original PDF from Publisher)
by Boris Zernikow
accompaniment on the last journey
Pediatric palliative care means taking children, adolescents and young adults with life-threatening or life-limiting diseases by the hand and supporting their affected families. The child’s body, soul and spirit require active and comprehensive care.
Based on the curriculum for palliative medicine, this book explains in detail and in a practical way how professional helpers from the palliative care team can meet the child in the face of death.
The authors span the spectrum from the structural, organizational and ethical foundations, the needs of dying children and practical pain therapy to the situation of caregivers and siblings as well as law and further education. Practice-oriented focus: symptom assessment and symptom therapy with new chapters on emergencies, symptom control and palliative sedation. Peculiarities in certain patient groups include, among other things, aspects of the care of children with severe multiple disabilities or children with cancer.
The new list of medicines and a compact guide to optimizing inpatient palliative care on normal wards serve as a helpful support in practical palliative care.
A competent book for the competent support of your patients.
