Beschreibung

This volume considers the specific medical, psycho-social and practical issues involved in caring for children dying from chronic diseases. It confronts the problems surrounding this emotive issue in order to help paediatricians and other clinicians provide the best possible care.

This pithy book fills a void in the literature on the practical care of the child living with chronic, ultimately termal illness and his family... Not only are impressively detailed demographics of these families given, but the daunting diversity of the children's conditions and families' circumstances are explored in reference to their impact on the provision of care... This book will provide critical information to any healthcare worker who wants to help children who are not expected to survive to adulthood, and their families. It is comprehensive, practical and easy to read.

Klappentext

Death in childhood is uncommon but for those families who have to confront the situation the burden is great. The stress and anxiety for health care workers is also considerable. This book considers the medical, psycho-social and practical issues involved in caring for children dying from chronic disease. It is directed towards pediatricians, family doctors and other professionals who may be involved in caring for terminally ill children and their families, whether at home or in hospital.



Zusammenfassung
This unique book considers the specific medical, psycho-social, and practical issues involved in caring for children dying from chronic diseases. Ann Goldman, herself a consultant paediatrician in palliative care at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, recognizes the special needs of terminally ill children and their families. She confronts the problems and issues surrounding the care of these children in order to help paediatricians and other professionals provide the very best possible care for such patients. A range of contributors experienced in palliative care for children provide comprehensive coverage of the subject, including: consideration of the magnitude of the problem and the provision of services, pain control symptom management, family support and communication with children, spiritual issues, bereavement, stress. This practical, interdisciplinary approach to the specific needs of children with terminal diseases will be invaluable for every professional who wishes to enhance standards of care for dying children and their families.
