Abstract
This book brings together in one volume many important topics about death and dying, including the pathophysiology of death, the causes of death among cancer patients, the ethics of death, the legal aspects of death for the physician and for the patient and caregivers, the economics of death, the medical management of the dying patient, including pain and dyspnea, the prediction of death, and the spiritual management of the dying patient. It also discusses other medical and humanistic aspects of death and dying, such as the historical definition of death and various cultures' and religions' viewpoints on death and the afterlife. Everybody, including every patient with cancer, will die, and every physician will have to assist dying patients. Oncologists face this prospect more often than many physicians. And yet to date there has been no comprehensive textbook on Thanatology, the academic discipline studying death and dying, to assist oncologists in this difficult task. This book will help the physician to understand his or her own relationship with death and to communicate about death and dying with the patient and the patient's caregivers.

Abstract
Psychological, social, and spiritual care is as important as physical care at the end of life. Yet caregivers often feel ill-equipped to give that nonphysical care. This book shows how to do it. The book addresses all caregivers who attend dying patients: doctors, nurses, chaplains, clergy in the pastorate, social workers, clinical psychologists, family caregivers, and others. It covers such topics as the functional and emotional trajectories of dying; the varied approaches of patients and caregivers to end-of-life decisions; culturally based beliefs about dying; the differences between depression and grief; and people's views about the right time to die, the death experience itself, and the afterlife. For each topic the book introduces core concepts and summarizes recent research about them. The book presents much of its material in readable tables for easy reference; applies the material to real-life cases; lists the main "take home" points for each chapter; and gives references for additional reading. The book helps caregivers anticipate the reactions of patients and survivors to end-of-life traumas and suggests how caregivers can respond insightfully and compassionately. At the same time the book challenges caregivers to think through their own views about death and dying. This book, therefore, is a must-read for all caregivers--professional and nonprofessional alike--who strive to give their patients comprehensive, high-quality end-of-life care.
Contents
Psychosocial and Spiritual Care with the End of Life in Sight -- The Symptoms and Signs of Dying -- Decisions at the Ends of Patients' Lives -- Risks, Benefits, and Patients' Treatment Decisions at the End of Life -- The Challenges of Prognosis Near the End of Life -- Advance Care Planning and Preparing to Die -- Proxy Decision-Making at the End of Life -- Impact of Terminal Illness on the Family -- Care for Family Caregivers -- Culture and End-of-Life Care -- The "Right" Time and Way to Die -- Going Home, the Afterlife, and Other Beliefs About Death -- Bereavement and Grief -- Giving End-of-Life Spiritual Care -- A Look Back, a Look Now, and a Look Forward.
