Alleviation, rehabilitation and participation

are the cornerstones not only of palliative care but also physiotherapy. Hence it is hardly surprising that physiotherapists are indisputable sources of strength to patients with life-limiting illnesses.

This book is the first of its kind to paint a comprehensive picture of the concepts and vision of palliative physiotherapy from both an authoritative and empathetic perspective. From paediatrics to geriatrics, from the early stages of a disease to the terminal phase, international experts provide a structured guide to the wide-ranging possibilities that physiotherapy has to offer as part of end of life care. Comprehensive advice as well as practical tips can be found in case studies and personal accounts. Insight is provided to clinical and non-clinical aspects as well as appropriate contextual information, for example

  • common symptoms such as pain, breathlessness, oedema, fatigue, weakness, anxiety or dementia
  • medication, symptoms of cord compression and palliative care emergencies
  • special features of paediatric palliative care
  • communication with patients and their families
  • ethics, intercultural proficiency and spirituality
  • opportunities for therapist self-care
This is a book for all those (not only in hospices and palliative care units) faced with caring for critically ill and terminally ill patients - essential reading for a professional, considered approach.
