NOW AVAILABLE!: "The Seven Agreements" A Guide for Physicians and Nurses Providing Care to the Dying.

"The Seven Agreements" is a comprehensive overview of the hospice program. It is designed to give physicians an in depth understanding of how the hospice team works and what to expect when your patient enters hospice. If you are giving care to an end-of-life patient that chooces not to use hospice services, this book will give you a wealth of information about how you can still support your patient and their family through the last days of their life. Although not intended to be a "how-to" manual for treating hospice patients, "The Seven Agreements" does include valuable suggestions on symptom management, available drug therapies and compounding medications, palliative care emergencies, understanding the unique needs of military veteran patients, managing terminal pediatric patients, and dietary suggestions for different symptoms. Every bit as important as the medical treatment information is the guidance and support you can give to your patient and family at end-of-life. "The Seven Agreements" presents inciteful awareness of your patient and family's grief process, how to provide spiritual support, end-of-life beliefs and rituals of different religious systems, the difference between pain and suffering, and how to give the "greatest gift" - the art of listening from your heart.

Using the four basic learning styles in presenting information, this learning module appeals to all parts of the brain and makes information more accessible and easy to retain. Each chapter of The Seven Agreements is divided into four learning modules;
"Just the Facts, Please..." covers the factual information about the topic,
"At the Heart of the Matter" explores emotional content,
"Putting it Into Practice" digs into the practical aspects of the material and
"A Closer Look" zeros in on more detailed content.

The Seven Agreements materials cover (among many other subjects):
• symptom and pain management
• principles of communication with dying patients, families and fellow team members
• spiritual care from a physician/nursing perspective
• principles of grief and loss
• patient and family teaching
• special information on suggested drugs and interventions for a variety of symptoms
