Conversations in Palliative Care focuses on adults from the age of 18 and above with serious illness. Nurses constantly encounter complex palliative patient care situations wherever patients are located including the home, the office, the long term care facility and all areas of the acute care. In order to provide the best care and meet the unique needs of patients, nurses need to have experts provide answers. What nurses often say they need most is the advice or support of a colleague—a “curbside” consultation with an experienced nursing colleague who can listen to their questions and help them think about situations often not emphasized in the literature.

This book is the next best thing to a curbside consultant. It is a collection of common clinical problems that are of great concern to nurses as they struggle to provide the most competent and compassionate care possible to their patients. The advice provided in this book is not only evidence based, it is nurse tested, written by palliative experts who have years of experience at the curbside, providing palliative care, and mentoring interdisciplinary colleagues.

This book offers a wide spectrum of interdisciplinary team members (OP, PT, SLP, Pharmacy, Volunteers), communication, pain and symptom management, settings of care, self-care and program topics. Chapter authors are well-known in the field. Each section represents the best evidence and is supported by the literature.
