Palliative care is an essential element of our health care system and is 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,and nurses are at the center of the palliative care team across settings and populations. The sixth volume in the HPNA Palliative Nursing Manuals series, Social Aspects of Care provides an overview of the financial and mental stress illness places, not just on the patient, but on the family as well.This volume contains information on how to support families in palliative care, cultural considerations important in end-of-life care, sexuality and the impact of illness, planning for the actual death, and bereavement. 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.
