Description This Second Edition of The Psychiatry of Palliative Medicine remains a practical and pragmatic distillation of the psychiatry relevant to the terminally ill. Revised throughout and greatly expanded by the addition of two entirely new chapters, it reviews the major psychiatric syndromes encountered in palliative care – depression, anxiety, delirium – and examines psychopharmacological and psychological interventions in detail. It succinctly considers the psychiatric aspects of pain, sleep, cognitive impairment, terminal neurodegenerative diseases, sedation, artificial feeding and euthanasia. The dying, chronically ill psychiatric patient is also discussed. The author has drawn on his great experience in both consultation-liaison psychiatry and palliative medicine to produce an essential, evidence-based guide for all healthcare professionals involved in palliative care. These include consultants and senior nurses, as well as psychiatrists, especially consultation-liaison psychiatrists, and trainees. ‘I find this an immensely sympathetic book, beautifully written. It is a testimony to the summation of specialist psychiatric knowledge, broad scholarship and a rich personal practice in bedside palliation.’ From the Foreword by Ian Maddocks Reviews of the first edition: '...a relevant, highly readable and reasonably priced book which will be of interest to all, whether from a psychiatric or palliative care background, who seek to improve the care of dying patients' INTERNATIONAL PSYCHOGERIATRICS ‘Practical, scientifically based and scholarly, addressing a comprehensive set of common and important clinical problems in palliative care. The book will doubtlessly be highly valued by palliative care clinicians for its practical and thorough overview of some of the most challenging clinical problems they face.
