The Compendiums of Treatment of End Stage Non-Cancer Diagnoses are a series of seven books designed to serve as a resource in constructing an appropriate plan of care for individuals and their families experiencing these diseases. These modules examine the incidence of each disease process, the pathophysiology of the illness, appropriate assessment techniques, and treatments as the disease progresses. The modules further define the psycho-social implications. The modules specifically question the potential ethical, economic and research implications as related to each specific disease process.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection decreases the immune system’s (specifically T-cells) ability to protect the body from infections and malignancies. Throughout the course of the infection, the virus continues to replicate, which creates further impairment of the immune system. The late stage of HIV is acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV has become a disorder that patients are now “dying with” rather than “dying from” due to advances in antiretroviral therapy. Though there numbers of new infections are lower than what they had been, people continue to be infected with HIV, many of which are not aware. Written by Phyllis Whitehead, The Compendium of Treatment of End Stage Non-Cancer Diagnoses: HIV/AIDS assists practitioners in understanding how living with this infection impacts quality of life by reviewing transmission, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, comorbid disorders, and treatment, including an extensive table on antiretrovirals.


NEW: Compendium of Treatment of End Stage Non-Cancer Diagnoses: HIV/AIDS is available alone or in a collection of other six-second editions (i.e., Dementia, Heart Failure, Neurological Diseases and Trauma, Hepatic, Pulmonary, Renal) bound in one book.
