The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing remains the most comprehensive treatise on the art and science of palliative care nursing available. Dr. Betty Rolling Ferrell and Dr. Judith A. Paice have invited 162 nursing experts to contribute 76 chapters addressing the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs pertinent to the successful palliative care team. Organized within 7 Sections, this new edition covers the gamut of principles of care: from the time of initial diagnosis of a serious illness to the end of a patient’s life and beyond.
This fifth edition features several new chapters, including chapters on advance care planning, organ donation, self-care, global palliative care, and the ethos of palliative nursing. Each chapter is rich with tables and figures, case examples for improved learning, and a strong evidence-based practice to support the highest quality of care. The book offers a valuable and practical resource for students and clinicians across all settings of care. The content is relevant for specialty hospice agencies and palliative care programs, as well as generalist knowledge for schools of nursing, oncology, critical care, and pediatric. Developed with the intention of emphasizing the need to extend palliative care beyond the specialty to be integrated in all settings and by all clinicians caring for the seriously ill, this new edition will continue to serve as the cornerstone of palliative care education.
Review “If you work in palliative nursing, this has to be the recommended reference. The information is comprehensive and well set out. There is adequate use of lists and tables, as well as a clear system of headings, which make the information more available. Each chapter opens with a list of key pointsand it all seems well-referenced.” — Roger Woodruff, IAHPC Newsletter”This book continues to be the essential reference for palliative nurses. There are a variety of nursing books available to address palliative care, but none are as comprehensive as this one. This is the most comprehensive evidence-based reference in this field.” — Jeanna Ann Ford, Doodys”This is the ultimate go-to book for nurses caring for patients at end of life and a must for all libraries. The textbook is fresh, current, and clinician friendly. For nurses caring for children and their families, three new chapters in this edition offer critical new information on caring foradolescents, using social media to communicate, and accessing pediatric care. Congratulations to the editors for producing such a comprehensive resource for all nurses, including pediatric nurses.” — Lisa C. Lindley, PhD, RN, FPCN, Associate Professor, College of Nursing, University of Tennessee,Knoxville, TN”What I immediately liked about this new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing are the chapters from new authors that both encompass a multidisciplinary approach and address todayâs healthcare, including such topics as value-based care, advance care planning, and organ donation. Thelast chapter in particular, “The Ethos of Palliative Nursing”, summarizes the essence of palliative care to guide nurses on focusing on the quality of life and support of patients and their family members.” — Rose Virani, RNC, MHA, OCN, FPCN, Senior Research Specialist and ELNEC Project Director,Division of Nursing Research and Education, City of Hope, Duarte, CA”Since its inception, the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing has been the go to resource for nurses and nurse practitioners caring for seriously ill patients and their families. The new Fifth Edition continues in that venerable tradition as an excellent resource for nurses at the bedside, in theclassroom, and conducting research in the field of palliative care. This edition reflects the growth of the field of palliative care nursing, both in breadth as palliative care expands to new settings and populations as well as depth as the evidence base for palliative care continues to mature.Congratulations to the editors and authors for producing such an outstanding textbook.” — Sally Norton, PhD, RN, FNAP, FPCN, FAAN, Associate Professor and Independence Foundation Chair in Nursing and Palliative Care, University of Rochester School of Nursing, Rochester, NY”The comprehensive scope and content of the Oxford Text of Palliative Nursing, Fifth Edition, is a testament to the growth in the specialty of palliative nursing. This book will serve as an essential resource for hospice and palliative nurses and other members of the interdisciplinary team, as wellas for clinicians who practice in other clinical specialties, but provide care for seriously ill patients and their families. The last chapter, “The Ethos of Palliative Nursing”, provides a great review of the moral nature of palliative nursing and provides a wonderful framework forself-reflection.” — Sally Welsh, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Chief Executive Officer, Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association, Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center, Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation, Savannah, GA –This text refers to the hardcover edition.

⭐ I paid for an expensive book I needed for school. I bought this book as a new book and got a used book instead. Spills and food on the pages. Even a bug smashed on one of them. Also someone else’s papers were in my book. I’m bothered I had to pay new book prices when it was clearly a used book. If I wanted a used book I would have bought a used book. ⭐ Excellent updates and very useful information. ⭐ Sehr ausführliches und fundiertes Buch, das alle wichtigen Fakten von Palliative Care beleuchtet.
