Description

Written by a group with wide experience of caring for dying children in Africa, this book provides theory with an emphasis on practical application in Africa as well as other resource-poor countries to improve care for the terminally ill child in constrained and demanding environments. It addresses themes common to palliative care--including communication, assessment, symptom management, psychosocial issues, ethical dilemmas, end-of-life care, and tips for the professional on compassion and conservation of energy--but always retains the focus on the particular needs of health care professionals in Africa.  Funded by the Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, it is available for purchase through Oxford University Press, and is available free of charge as a on-line/downloadable file at website provided.
