Summary

Palliative care consists of medical care or treatment that focuses on alleviating disease symptoms, rather than delaying or reversing progression of the disease. It is given when a cure is not possible to help patients have the best quality of life through relieving pain and suffering. Diet and nutritional support play an integral part of the patient's holistic well-being. Following the tradition of its predecessor, this new edition presents nutritional guidelines and diet therapy used in palliative care. Fully updated and revised, the new edition helps health practitioners achieve best practice with patients for end of life care.
