Description : Palliative care affirms the value of holistic support for persons facing death from advanced disease. Increasingly the approach of palliative care is seen as relevant not only to terminal cancer (its initial concern) but also to many other incurable conditions. To date, the major emphasis of specialist neurology has been on diagnosis, and the continuing long term management of the many major diseases has received far less attention. This handbook aims to provide succinct and practical advice on the management of major neurological disorders in both their supportive and terminal phases, recognizing that these conditions are increasing in prevalence in virtually every society as the proportion of elderly persons grows. It demonstrates how the discomforts encountered in dementia, stroke, Parkinson's disease, ALS, Huntington's disease, muscular dystrophies and multiple sclerosis can benefit from the same comprehensive approach to palliation as has evolved in specialist care for cancer.

Description : With the growth of neuropalliative care as a rapidly-emerging subspecialty in neurology, it is essential that clinicians develop core skills to offer high-quality, patient-centred care. This book captures the essence of palliative care in neurology, highlighting abundant opportunities to incorporate key principles into patients' management plans. Through a pragmatic, case-based format with suggested references for readers to expand their knowledge on a range of topics, this guide explores didactic opportunities. From patients facing challenging end-of-life decisions, families struggling to determine the treatment intensities, to clinicians leading difficult conversations, these cases are straightforward and relatable. Demonstrating the breadth of palliative care opportunities occurring on the spectrum of neurologic disease, this essential toolkit supports clinicians at all levels, providing assistance for patients who have chronic, progressive, or terminal neurologic diseases. Compelling and thought-provoking, this guide highlights the many opportunities to ease suffering and to improve quality of life.

Description : Patients with chronic neurologic disorders suffer from the burden of disease progression without the hope for a cure. Therefore, symptom management and palliative care approaches should be included from the beginning of the illness. Palliative care aims at improving a patient’s quality of life by alleviating suffering due to physical, psychosocial, and spiritual factors. Since no curative and only limited life-prolonging treatment options are available for most chronic neurologic disorders, a palliative care approach can help to create a treatment plan that considers all aspects of the disease. We have provided palliative care approaches for the most common neurodegenerative disorders like dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. A palliative approach to neurologic disorders does not simply mean limiting treatment and focusing on pain. Instead, the whole unit of care, consisting of the patient, relatives, and caregivers, should be perceived with all their needs.

Description : Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or motor neurone disease) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that can cause profound suffering for both the patient and their family. Whilst new treatments for ALS are being developed, these are not curative and offer only the potential to slow its progression. Palliative care must therefore be integral to the clinical approach to the disease. Palliative Care in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: From diagnosis to bereavement reflects the wide scope of this care; it must cover not just the terminal phase, but support the patient and their family from the onset of the disease. Both the multidisciplinary palliative care team and the neurology team are essential in providing a high standard of care and allowing quality of life (both patient and carer) to be maintained. Clear guidelines are provided to address care throughout the disease process. Control of symptoms is covered alongside the psychosocial care of patients and their families. Case studies are used to emphasise the complexity of the care needs and involvement of the patient and family, culminating in discussion of bereavement. Different models of care are explored, and this new edition utilizes the increase in both the evidence-base and available literature on the subject. New topics discussed include complementary therapies, personal and family experiences of ALS, new genetics research, and updated guidelines for patient care, to ensure this new edition remains the essential guide to palliative care in ALS.

Description : This Second Edition of The Psychiatry of Palliative Medicine remains a practical and pragmatic distillation of the psychiatry relevant to the terminally ill. Revised throughout and greatly expanded by the addition of two entirely new chapters, it reviews the major psychiatric syndromes encountered in palliative care - depression, anxiety, delirium - and examines psychopharmacological and psychological interventions in detail. It succinctly considers the psychiatric aspects of pain, sleep, cognitive impairment, terminal neurodegenerative diseases, sedation, artificial feeding and euthanasia. The dying, chronically ill psychiatric patient is also discussed. The author has drawn on his great experience in both consultation-liaison psychiatry and palliative medicine to produce an essential, evidence-based guide for all healthcare professionals involved in palliative care.

Description : The causes of death in patients with neurodegenerative diseases are important information for patients and relatives because misleading information causes additional burdens. Early and frank discussion about disease progression, the causes of death, and end-of-life decisions might support the patient’s and family’s acceptance of the dying process and also helps physicians to frame treatment goals more explicitly. These goals include the place of death as well as medication administered at the end of life. The Liverpool Care Pathway provides a useful tool to standardize the care at the end of life that contributes to individual decisions and care plans. The prescription of medication at the end of life in various neurodegenerative diseases differs from treatment during the earlier phases of the diseases, not only because of swallowing difficulties but also in terms of symptom control.

Description : No specialty faces more diverse and challenging ethical dilemmas than palliative medicine. What is the best way to plan ahead for the end of life? How should physicians respond when patients refuse treatments likely to be beneficial, or demand treatments not likely to be? Who makes medical decisions for patients who are too ill to decide for themselves? Do patients have the "right to die" (and, if so, what exactly does that mean)? In this volume noted palliative care physician and bioethicist Robert C. Macauley addresses a broad range of issues from historical, legal, clinical, and ethical perspectives. Clinically nuanced and philosophically rigorous, Ethics in Palliative Care analyzes hot-button subjects like physician assisted dying and euthanasia, as well as often overlooked topics such as pediatric palliative care, organ donation, palliative care research, and moral distress. Drawing on real cases yet written in non-technical language, this complete guide will appeal to both medical professionals and lay readers.
