Product Description

By Annette F Street, Carol Tishelman, Jeanine Blackford, Joakim Öhlén

Published: 2007
ISBN: 978-0-9757710-4-4
Pages: ii+154


Illness, death, loss and grief are universal experiences. Thus the provision of palliative and supportive care that meet the needs of diverse and vulnerable populations requires a public health approach.

This special issue introduces new voices into the debate and charts changing international trends in the provision of care for dying people and their families.

Experts provide updates on latest clinical therapies and community practice. Research reports address many taboo topics so often ignored in palliative and supportive care clinical discourse around death and dying - including intimacy, sexuality, shame and guilt, grief and spirituality.

Innovative projects in health promoting palliative care are show cased. Here we find the wisdom of emerging leaders in community-based policy, information, education and early-intervention strategies to provide people facing death with choices, engagement and supportive care.

This issue is essential reading for Palliative care practitioners, nursing educators, researchers and community health nurses.
