Geriatric Palliative Care

Edited by R. Sean Morrison and Diane E. Meier
Deputy Editor Carol Capello

The theme of this book is that palliative care is the best approach to the care of the chronically ill and frail elderly because of its focus on: quality of life; support for functional independence; and the centrality of the patient's values and experiences in determining the goals of medical care.
