The Medical Care of Terminally Ill Patients, second edition

Since the publication of the first edition of The Medical Care of Terminally Ill Patients, the field of palliative care has progressed significantly, both socially and scientifically. In this new edition, Dr. Robert Enck reviews the results of clinical studies devoted to the care of dying patients. Special attention is given to pain management, management of symptoms, care of advanced cancer patients, and care of patients with nonmalignant diseases. More than 100 new references, a new list of abbreviations, and tables with new drugs and dosages provides valuable information.

Dr. Enck places great emphasis on enhancing the quality of life while addressing the most common symptoms of terminal illness.

Robert E. Enck, M.D., is a clinical associate professor in the Department of Medicine at The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Care.
