The book covers everything from hospice philosophy to Medicare regulations, from criteria for determining prognosis to dealing with grief and bereavement. Recommendations focus on identifying and limiting futile treatments; on pursuing opportunities to better understand the pathophysiology of physical and emotional symptoms in patients with life-threatening illness; and on providing reliable, effective, and humane care at this point in the normal cycle of human life. The book is useful for self-study and group training or as a text for related college courses. Chapter tests and answer keys for evaluation purposes are included in two appendixes.
