E-BOOK DESCRIPTION

Supportive Care for the Renal Patient, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive, evidence-based overview of supportive care for the nephrology patient. An international group of contributors emphasize the continuum of palliative care from the time of diagnosis through to end-of-life care and the issues surrounding withdrawal of dialysis. The book addresses the psychological impact of the disease, the importance of involving the patient in making decisions about their care, ethical considerations, the role of the family, and the role of the multidisciplinary team.

This new edition includes two new chapters on conservative management of advanced kidney disease (AKD) and dialysis in the very elderly. The chapters covering non pain symptoms, advance care planning, quality of life, psychological and psychiatric consideration, and end-of-life care have also been completely revised to include new evidence and current thinking.

This book will be of particular interest to palliative care practitioners, nephrologists, who increasingly need to know more about palliative care, nurse practitioners, dialysis nurses, social workers, dieticians, and psychiatric consultants.
