Palliative Care: Transforming the Care of Serious Illness
Date:4/1/2010

Why the care of the seriously ill is so important
- Efforts to cope with advanced illness
- Legal and ethical issues
- Pain management
- Cross-cultural issues
- Philosophical perspective

The demand for palliative care has been nothing short of stunning—largely because of palliative care's positive impact on both the quality and the cost of care provided to seriously ill individuals. By providing a wide-ranging perspective on this growing field, this book will serve as a guide for developing meaningful approaches that will lead to better health care for all Americans. The book is co-edited by Stephen L. Isaacs and Robert Hughes.
