Palliative care is an essential element of our health care system and becoming increasingly significant amidst an aging society and organizations struggling to provide both compassionate and cost effective care. Palliative care is also characterized by a strong interdisciplinary approach. Nurses are at the center of the palliative care team across settings and populations. The third volume in the HPNA Palliative Nursing Manuals series, Physical Aspects of Care: Nutritional, Dermatologic, Neurologic and Other Symptoms, provides an overview of the principles of symptom assessment and management for symptoms including: fatigue, anorexia and cachexia, artificial nutrition and hydration, urinary tract disorders, lymphedema, skin disorders such as pressure ulcers, wounds, fistulas, and stomas, pruritus, fever, sweats, neurological disorders, anxiety and depression, and insomnia. The content of the concise, clinically focused volumes in the HPNA Palliative Nursing Manuals series is
one resource for nurses preparing for specialty certification exams and provides a quick-reference in daily practice. Plentiful tables, figures, and practical tools such as assessment instruments, pharmacology tables, and patient teaching points make these volumes useful resources for nurses.
