The hospice has emerged in recent years as an important component of health care. In turn, the demand for adequately trained personnel has grown. The history and nature of hospice care are explored in this volume, which serves as an introduction to the skills and knowledge necessary for practitioners, counsellors and volunteers in this field. The authors emphasize the non-medical role of the hospice which seeks to enable patients to live the final period of their lives with as much dignity and as little pain and suffering as possible. Topics covered include: organizational and policy issues; working with patients and their families; and grief and bereavement.
