The concept of a "good death" has been hotly debated in medical circles for decades. This volume delves into the possibility and desirability of a "good death" by presenting the psychosocial measures of care as a crucial component, such as religion, existentialism, hope and meaning-making. The volume also focuses on oncologic psychiatry and the influence of technology as a means to alleviate pain and suffering, and potentially provide relief to those at the end of life. Such initiatives are shown to be physically pain free, socially bolstering and emotionally comforting to ensure a peaceful closure with life as opposed to a battle waged.
Utilizing the most recent information from medical journals and books to present the latest on healthcare and dying today, this volume crosses the boundaries of thanatology, psychology, religion, spirituality, medical ethics and public health.
This book is a comprehensive atlas that covers the potential complications for the full range of interventional procedures. The emphasis throughout is on a practical, useful presentation with an "atlas" type of format. Each complication is presented first with a case example: case description; how it was dealt with; why it happened; and a discussion of whether and how it could have been avoided in this case. Following is a broader presentation providing more context on why the specific complication may occur; how to anticipate it; how to avoid or minimize it if possible and how to address it if it occurs.
