Nerve blocks in palliative care

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In most patients, pain medication, along with physical therapy and supportive counselling, adequately controls the pain of terminal disease, but in some cases pain medication fails or produces unacceptable side effects, and other more invasive interventions may be used. This practical book provides comprehensive and easy-to-follow guidelines on nerve blocking and neuromodulation techniques to help patients and professionals make choices in pain management. Patients selection and appropriate referral are discussed as well as ethical issues and consent. This book will be an invaluable source of information for a variety of professionals working with patients with advanced disease, including palliative care doctors and specialist nurses, as there is a scarcity of consultants in pain management in the field of palliative care. Some healthcare professionals may not have experience of the full range of techniques that may benefit their patients, therefore limiting the choices available to patients with uncontrolled pain in the context of palliative care. This book will ensure that the full range of techniques are considered to provide excellent care for patients with pain that is difficult to manage.

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
