Una finestra nella tua casa. Cure palliative e conforto nella malattia

Giorgio Noseda

editore: GCE

pagine: 208

Il termine "palliativo" deriva da pallium, che nella Roma antica designava il telo di lana che si poggiava su una spalla e si drappeggiava intorno al corpo, per proteggerlo. Nella medicina moderna questo termine ha purtroppo assunto un significato vagamente negativo, di rimedio sostitutivo, inadatto a risolvere del tutto un problema di salute. Il marito di una paziente ci ha detto: "Non vogliamo cure palliative. Vogliamo medicina, non carità!". Si dimentica invece che con esso si designa tutto un complesso di cure, che sarebbe più appropriato definire "di supporto". Le cure palliative non sono rimedi inefficaci, al contrario. Studi clinici testimoniano la loro validità anche in termini di sopravvivenza e di miglioramento della qualità di vita. Nonostante molti medici siano convinti che le cure palliative aiutino molto, essi le prescrivono generalmente troppo tardi. Le cure palliative si prefiggono di mantenere la qualità della vita e il diritto alla vita del paziente sino alla morte, di alleviarne le sofferenze, nel rispetto dei suoi desideri e delle necessità fisiche, psicologiche, morali, sociali, esistenziali e culturali.

Le core-competencies dell'operatore socio-sanitario in cure palliative

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 128

L'integrazione multiprofessionale è una peculiarità delle cure palliative ma non esiste un modello di core-competencies adottato a livello nazionale che definisca le specificità delle competenze del personale operante in cure palliative. Questo volume - partendo dall'evoluzione storico-normativa delle cure palliative, dalla figura dell'O.S.S. in Italia e dall'impianto teorico dei concetti di core-competence - delinea fasi e risultati del percorso metodologico del Progetto e presenta il documento sulle core-competencies dell'O.S.S. in cure palliative quale prodotto finale del Progetto. Infine vengono individuate le possibili applicazioni delle core-competencies nell'ambito formativo ed organizzativo delle cure palliative. Il volume si rivolge quindi non solo agli O.S.S. che sono impegnati o che desiderano impegnarsi nell'assistenza alla persona con bisogni di cure palliative ma anche ai professionisti operanti nell'ambito della formazione e dell'organizzazione dei servizi all'interno del sistema sanitario e socio-assistenziale: i contenuti del documento e la descrizione dei possibili ambiti applicativi possono rappresentare una base per lo sviluppo di percorsi formativi mirati, per la definizione di profili di competenza e di percorsi di inserimento all'interno delle singole organizzazioni.

Oxford Textbook of Palliative Care for Children

Ann Goldman, Richard Hain
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 520

The first edition of this book was the first authoritative, systematic and comprehensive text to define the increasingly important and evolving specialty of paediatric palliative care. It explores both the clinical aspects and the multidimensional and holistic nature of care for the dying child, based on the knowledge that all human experience has a physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual impact. The book covers ways of providing support in all of these areas both for the child, families, and carers, recognising the importance of teamwork and taking an evidence-based approach. The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Care for Children is about the care of children for whom cure of their underlying disease is not possible. It encompasses the physical management of symptoms such as pain and nausea, as well as social issues such as accessing appropriate education, emotional issues such as techniques for communication, and spiritual issues such as feelings of guilt and isolation. The book suggests that if we are to maintain the quality of life for a child it is essential to recognise all these dimensions and try to address them. This can only be done by recognising the skills of a wide range of professionals and working together in ways that are not always intuitive to any one discipline. It explores the multidimensional and holistic nature of care for the dying child. Those working in paediatric palliative care recognise that all human experience has emotional, psychological and spiritual impact as well as physical, and this book offers the essential information needed for those involved in paediatric care to find ways of providing support in all of these areas. Comprehensive in scope, exhaustive in detail, and definitive in authority, this second edition has been thoroughly updated to cover new practices, current epidemiological data and the evolving models that support the delivery of palliative medicine to children. Paediatric palliative care is now developing in countries with differing health care systems, and being adapted to suit individual illnesses and the varying resources and geography in different parts of the world. This book is an essential resource for anyone who works with children worldwide.

Il metodo Gorter. Un'innovativa terapia atossica per il cancro

Robert W. Gorter, Erik Peper

editore: Polistampa

pagine: 280

Il volume descrive il rivoluzionario "metodo Gorter", un approccio integrativo e non tossico alla cura del cancro a cui ogni giorno si affida un numero sempre maggiore di pazienti. Basato su lunghi anni di ricerche e sperimentazioni cliniche, il metodo punta a rafforzare il sistema immunitario attraverso la terapia della febbre (ipertermia), l'inoculazione di cellule dendritiche, l'uso del vischio (viscum album) e di integratori alimentari, oltre che tramite cambiamenti decisivi nella dieta e nello stile di vita. Organizzato in tre parti, il libro offre una panoramica dettagliata del trattamento, illustrando le ricerche che hanno portato al suo sviluppo e delineando le principali strategie per rafforzare la risposta immunitaria. Sono riportate inoltre diverse testimonianze di pazienti, molti dei quali sono sopravvissuti ben oltre la propria prognosi, ottenendo in alcuni casi una remissione completa e duratura della malattia. Il libro si rivolge sia ai medici che al largo pubblico.

Beniamino Palmieri

editore: Tecniche Nuove

pagine: 334

Questo libro descrive l'area terapeutica comprendente le cure palliative in campo oncologico esercitate con tipi diversi di strumenti scarsamente invasivi quali: radiofrequenze; elettroterapia ed elettrochemioterapia; crioterapia; laser terapia per infissione con fibra ottica della neoplasia; fototerapia con coloranti radiosensibili; infiltrazione intratumorale di principi attivi, chemioterapici, immunomodulanti; ipertermia in senso generale, locoregionale, focale; terapia locoregionale; terapia genica; terapia con anticoagulanti. L'autore passa in esame le diverse metodologie terapeutiche descrivendone i principi, le apparecchiature utilizzate e le modalità d'azione e riportando i lavori scientifici e le casistiche che ne descrivono i risultati. Si inizia con l'esame della risposta dei malati alle radiofrequenze in termini di riduzione della dimensione o distruzione di vari tipi di tumore, ricavando quindi linee di indirizzo sull'uso di questa tecnica. Si procede quindi passando in rassegna le altre varie tecniche e i possibili campi di azione. L'obiettivo è cercare di ottenere un miglioramento della qualità di vita del malato oncologico ed eventualmente anche un suo prolungamento. Il testo è rivolto a medici in generale e in particolare a operatori sanitari come palliativisti, anestesisti che lavorano nella terapia del dolore, personale degli hospice o che opera sul territorio nella terapia di malati terminali.

The Syringe Driver

Continuous Subcutaneous Infusions in Palliative Care

Andrew Dickman, Jennifer Schneider

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 496

The syringe driver is a simple and cost-effective method of delivering a continuous subcutaneous infusion (CSCI). A CSCI provides a safe and effective way of drug administration and can be used to maintain symptom control in patients who are no longer able to take oral medication. There have been several developments in this field since the second edition of this highly successful book. The text in this edition has been completely revised, incorporating new treatment options and an extensive list of new compatibility data. This book serves as a valuable reference source, providing comprehensive review of syringe driver use and administration of drugs via CSCI. The first chapter provides an overview of syringe drivers and CSCIs, including a useful array of frequently asked questions. The second chapter provides revised and referenced information relating to most drugs likely to be administered via a CSCI using a syringe driver. The third chapter discusses the control of specific symptoms that are often encountered when CSCIs are required. The fourth and final chapter contains an extensive, referenced list of physical and chemical stability data relating to drug combinations administered via CSCI.

Drugs in Palliative Care

Andrew Dickman

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 520

While palliative care has adopted a holistic approach to treatment, medication driven symptom management ostensibly forms the critical aspect of care. Pharmacological therapy can be extremely complex because these patients often have co-existing medical conditions in addition to symptoms caused by their terminal disease. The resulting polypharmacy can be daunting for professionals and can negatively impact on effectiveness of care. The practitioner requires a simple, easy to navigate reference source that provides succinct and pertinent drug information. This detailed yet concise handbook will appeal to a variety of healthcare professionals involved in the provision of palliative care and medicines information. It begins with an overview of pharmacology and prescribing advice then contains over 100 entries of palliative care drugs, in an easy to use A-Z format.

End of Life Care in the ICU

From Advanced Disease to Bereavement

Elie Azoulay, Graeme Rocker
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 416

The Oxford Specialist Handbooks series provides readers with clear, concise information on all that is needed to successfully train in the medical sub-specialties. Each book gives an overview of clearly defined procedures, skills, guidelines, and technologies and provides practical tips and case studies to supplement hands-on experience. Where appropriate, each book complements the revised curriculum as developed by the Specialist Advisory Committees. As palliative medicine does not have the resources to care for all patients with malignant and non-malignant chronic disease, government guidelines have pushed for its inclusion on the curriculum of most medical and surgical specialties. All specialties are being encouraged to become actively engaged in managing end of life care for their own patients. End of life care in the ICU presents its own unique challenges, and this book highlights real clinical issues which need to be addressed if quality palliative care within ICUs is to be consistently delivered. It details strategies and evidence-based advice on the nature of effective palliative care in the ICU setting, dealing with issues such as diagnosing the dying, communicating with patients and families, the support of families and carers, multidisciplinary team work, TPN and fluids, dialysis, inotropic support, autonomy, dignity, effective symptom control, practical ethics and the process of decision making, management of dying, and bereavement care. This book is ideal for doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals working in the ICU and palliative care.

Palliative Care

An Integrated Approach

Jenny Buckley

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 348

This evidence-based text brings together the theory and practice of palliative care. It examines at all aspects of palliative care i.e. psycho social, spiritual and physical in a highly practical way. The evidence base for cancer care has been developed within the Hospice Movement over the past 50 years and, in the main, it transfers across to patients dying of diseases other than cancer. The book addresses the palliative needs of any patient with any disease in any care setting, which gives it a generic approach. This is in line with current government directives. Contributions to care and treatment are considered in a multidisciplinary and complementary way.

La formula di René Caisse. Un rimedio per difendersi dal cancro e dalle malattie degenerative

Ludovico Guarneri

editore: Anima

pagine: 112

Il dott. Brusch, medico personale di J. F. Kennedy, usò questa miscela di erbe degli indiani d'America, utilizzata all'inizio dalla infermiera canadese Renè Caisse, per 30 anni nella sua clinica e dichiarò pubblicamente: «I risultati ottenuti su pazienti di etnie, età e sessi diverse, affetti da tutti i tipi di cancro dimostrano senza dubbio che la formula è una terapia contro il cancro. Inoltre studi effettuati in laboratorio negli Usa ed in Canada rafforzano questa certezza». L'autore, ammalatosi di cancro nel 1995, ha potuto personalmente apprezzare le qualità della tisana e da allora ha passato parola a centinaia di malati raccogliendone poi le testimonianze positive.

Palliative Care in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

From Diagnosis to Bereavement

David Oliver, Declan Walsh
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 288

Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis (or motor neurone disease) is a rare disease but one that can cause profound suffering for both the patient and their family. Whilst new treatments for ALS are being developed, these are not curative and offer only the potential to slow its progression. Palliative care must therefore be integral to the clinical approach to the disease. Palliative Care in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: From diagnosis to bereavement reflects the wide scope of this care; it must cover not just the terminal phase, but support the patient and their family from the onset of the disease. Both the multidisciplinary palliative care team and the neurology team are essential in providing a high standard of care and allowing quality of life (both patient and carer) to be maintained. Clear guidelines are provided to address care throughout the disease process. Control of symptoms is covered alongside the psychosocial care of patients and their families, culminating in discussion of bereavement. The experience of patients and families is considered and case studies are provided to show the practical application of the theoretical knowledge.Different models of care are explored, and this new edition utilises the increase in both the evidence-base and available literature on the subject. Additional chapters on nursing, spiritual care, decision making, and ethical issues surrounding end of life care ensure that this new edition remains the essential guide to palliative care in ALS.
