Basic Symptom Control in Paediatric Palliative Care is a key clinical tool used by children’s palliative care doctors and nurses across the world. It is the only resource of its kind that provides comprehensive guidelines for treating a wide range of symptoms experienced by children with life-limiting or complex health conditions.
Basic Symptom Control in Paediatric Palliative Care, now in its 9.5 edition, has become known as the symptom control ‘industry bible’ for professionals working in the field.
Basic Symptom Control in Paediatric Palliative Care has been developed and edited by Dr Satbir Singh Jassal, GP and Medical Director at Rainbows Children’s Hospice, with contributions and peer reviews from 29 leading paediatric and palliative care specialists. It provides doctors and nursing staff with an ‘all in one’ reference tool for symptom management and children’s palliative care medicines.
It’s been designed to provide both practical support and hands on clinical information in the acute setting. It’s also been written in language that parents can easily understand, as doctors and nursing staff who care for children in the community often leave a copy in the family home so it is on hand for reference.
Basic Symptom Control in Paediatric Palliative Care is packed with information about how to appropriately treat a wide range of symptoms including: infections, nausea and vomiting, seizures and muscle spasm, as well as pain management. For the first time, this new updated edition is available as a completely online resource, available whenever, and wherever you need to access it.
