Michèle Boiron, François Roux
e altri

editore: Edra

pagine: 176

I trattamenti antitumorali comportano numerosi effetti collaterali e i pazienti si rivolgono sempre più alle terapie di supporto per migliorare la propria qualità di vita. L'omeopatia figura al primo posto tra le medicine complementari utilizzate. Poter consigliare o prescrivere un trattamento omeopatico adatto è un reale vantaggio per i professionisti della salute. Ma è necessario individuare quali effetti collaterali possono essere gestiti e soprattutto con quali farmaci omeopatici. Il testo è una guida pratica che risponde esattamente a questa esigenza. Il testo è suddiviso in 5 sezioni a seconda dei diversi ambiti di utilizzo e ogni patologia descritta è accompagnata da note di fisiopatologia, da un albero decisionale e da casi clinici che guidano il lettore dai sintomi alla prescrizione.

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.

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.

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.

Paediatric Palliative Medicine

Richard Hain, Satbir Singh Jassal

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 328

Looking after children with life-limiting conditions can be very difficult for both the parents as well as the health care professionals who may only see a few cases in their career. Paediatric Palliative Care is full of easily-accesible, detailed information on medical conditions and symptoms and includes specific management plans. While the book encompasses symptom control, it also considers the philosophy and models that support delivery of palliative medicine to children, while also covering practical delivery of palliative medicine, relating to other professionals and to families, and the learning and coping skills required in palliative care. It also contains a quick-reference drug formulary. While specialization in paediatric palliative medicine is increasing, for most children with a life-limiting condition, the majority of their care is still provided by professionals without specialist training and care may come from a general paediatric or other sub-specialist team. Others will be cared for by primary care teams, or sometimes by adult palliative medicine teams.The unique significance of this handbook is its capacity to facilitate practical bedside delivery of effective palliative medicine to children by professionals who have not trained or had experience of caring for the dying child.
