The practice of hospice and palliative care nursing is evolving and growing, enabling this specialty to be fully integrated into the spectrum of all practice settings. This has propelled nurses into thinking about the continuum of care in creative ways and enhanced the bedside delivery of hospice and palliative care. It is an exciting time to be in this amazing field and our resources must reflect this growth.
In preparing nurses for this expanding role, it is vital to include up-to-date evidence to guide practice in this new 4th edition. Compared to previous editions, you will find the authors have included the latest evidence while retaining some of the classic literature, which provides important context and background. We are hopeful this evidence-packed 4th edition will serve as a preparatory guide for the board certification exam and a practice guide for the hospice and palliative care nurse.
New chapters in the 4th edition: Psychiatric/Psychosocial Symptoms and Diagnoses and National Guidelines and RN Practice.
Note: This is the 4th edition of the Core Curriculum for the Generalist Hospice and Palliative Nurse.
