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 psychosocial implications. Potential ethical, economic and research implications as related to each specific disease process are also discussed.
The second edition of the Compendium
of Treatment of End Stage Non-Cancer Diagnoses: Dementia is over twice the size of the first edition. It
is a more in-depth review of a
variety of neurocognitive disorders or dementia types (e.g., Alzheimer’s
disease, vascular dementia, dementia from Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia,
alcohol-related dementia, neurocognitive dementia due to HIV infection). The
emphasis is on advanced end stage illness and palliative care issues for
patients and families across the illness trajectory. The individual types of
dementia are described according to pathophysiology and presentation, along
with the most common progressive, palliative care conditions. Universal
approaches to care are discussed inclusive of assessment, advance care
planning, and locations of care.
Compendium of Treatment of
End Stage Non-Cancer Diagnoses: Dementia is available
alone or in a collection of other six-second editions (i.e., Heart Failure, Neurological
Diseases and Trauma, Hepatic, HIV/AIDS, Pulmonary, Renal) bound in one book.
