Product Description & Reviews

Quality wound care in hospice is a challenge. As patients decline, advanced disease can compromise the body’s largest organ – the skin. Good wound care is essential to promoting comfort and dignity; yet with limited studies devoted to skin conditions at end of life, evidence-based guidelines specific to wound care are limited. This book provides guidance for the assessment and palliative management of wounds. Many factors influence whether healing a wound is a realistic goal. Whether the goal is for healing or for symptom relief, untreated wounds can lead to physical discomfort and impair quality of life. It is necessary that they receive appropriate intervention. www.hospiscript.com IAHPC Book Review: “This is my sort of manual. It’s short, clear, and well set-out with algorithms and treatment tables – even a physician can understand it. It starts with the BUILD program, which looks like a bit of classic palliative care. Build trust and respect with patient and family; Understand how wound impacts on them; Information about wound care and outcomes; Listen to the patient; and Develop a plan with the patient. … This book would be useful to the experienced professional as a quick treatment lookup tool, and as a learning guide for those less experienced…” – Dr Roger Woodruff, IAHPC International Association for Hospice & Palliative Care (IAHPC). IAHPC Book Reviews: Wound Care at End of Life. IAHPC News 2013;14(11).
