This new and expanded edition is aimed directly at the learning needs of student nurses and is unique in that context. Whilst there are many high quality books available for academic study in palliative care this is currently the only one that balances a strong educational focus for developing nursing practice with an understanding of the particular needs of student nurses. The text maintains a sensitive and supportive approach to the key themes of palliative care nursing, but contains important new material of a wide range of initiatives that are impacting on end of life care across the UK. It will provide the reader with a concise, easy to read and learning oriented text that will give advice and direction to the many challenges faced in this most important area of patient care. Each chapter examines a key component of care and new features include: learning outcomes at the start of each chapter to guide the reader; clinical anecdotes to illustrate the reality and complexity of practice; extensive use of recognisable symbols to guide the reader and improve the usability of the text; competency assessment to help gauge knowledge and progress; reflective points to aid professional development; reflective activities to enable the student to reinforce learning from practice; links to appropriate clauses of the current 2008 NMC Code of Professional Conduct; quality internet resources relevant to chapter content; self assessment multiple choice tests at the end of each chapter to consolidate learning; and, an extensive palliative care quiz covering the main topic areas of the book to test knowledge. This can be used as evidence with professional portfolios.
