Beschreibung

  • Focuses on specific issues in end of life care for neurological disease
  • Develops and expands the most important issues in this developing field
  • Has a multidisciplinary focus to reflect clinical practice in this field

People with advancing neurological disease face increasing physical symptoms, along with psychosocial and spiritual issues affecting both themselves and their families and carers.  There is increasing awareness that the end of life in neurological disease can be anticipated and recognised, taking into account certain key features of disease progression, and the associated issues can be addressed. The individual can prepare for future changes in their health, and be in a stronger position to influence or direct the care they receive.

End of Life Care in Neurological Disease encourages health and social care professionals to become closely involved in the care of these people and their families, to maintain and maximise quality of life and plan ahead. This book addresses the principles and practice of end of life care for neurological disease, is written with a clinical, multidisciplinary focus, and is enriched with detailed case studies.

This book is an accessible text for the multidisciplinary team in specialist palliative care, and will also be of interest to healthcare professionals in neurological services, including neurologists and neurology specialist nurses, rehabilitation services, general practitioners and community nurses. As care professionals, we are in a powerful position to help those who are living with advanced neurological disease and improve their quality of life and death.
