Anguish - A Case History of a Dying Trajectory

£14.99

Product description

This poignant case history concerns a woman who entered hospoital suffering from cancer and died there some months later. She was a difficult, demanding, middle aged woman who put great strain on the staff and whose eventual death was greeted with relief by everyone who had looked after her. The dying trajectory is followed virtually day by day, encompassing the reactions and behaviour of nursing staff, doctors and the patient herself.

This case highlights the necessity of attempting to solve the many social-psychological problems of dying in hospital and the authors offer an interrelated set of general recommendations as a first step towards the improvement of terminal care.

Very good condition. This book is clean and undamaged both internally and externally with a very tidy dust jacket. Binding is tight. No evident signs of use.
