Book Description: This second edition of the text will equip frontline caregivers to respond to the changing needs of any person living with life-limiting illness and their family. You will learn best practice skills for participating fully as a vital member of the health care team. Integrating a Palliative Approach will increase your con­fidence and competence in providing compassionate palliative care for the dying person and their family by developing your capacity to: 1) integrate a palliative approach and support the person and family through decline and during last days and hours; 2) provide culturally safe palliative care that is free of systemic bias and racism; 3) understand and provide psychosocial care for the person and family; and 4) develop self-care practices to sustain you. This is a rare text that engages you with its warmth and heart--it is an essential resource for all frontline caregivers.
