Clinical supervision for palliative care

by Jean Bayliss | 30 June 2006
Paperback
Category: Medical Academic
Synopsis
Palliative care is arguably the most stressful area of nursing and care work, as well as being one of the most rewarding. It is an enormous privilege to share the final part of anyone's life journey - a journey that can too often feel lonely - and helping to ease that loneliness as part of a palliative care team is fulfilling and valuable. It is work that requires a high level of practical skill, which can help the dying person to feel more comfortable and confident. But practical skills, valuable though they are, are not enough. Palliative care demands from its practitioners an equally high level of compassion and resilience. Offering this combination of practical comfort and deeply felt concerned support is hugely demanding. This book is an attempt to suggest a strategy for professional help which will also enhance patient and client care. Clinical supervision has been researched, promoted, and proven as a very effective strategy for constantly developing skills, for maintaining and raising standards, for encouraging personal and professional development, and for building team ethos. This book therefore explores clinical supervision and the qualities, skills, models and ethics needed to ensure success. Clinical Supervision for Palliative Care is written as a workbook. You will find pauses for reflection and it is recommended that you keep paper and pen to hand to write down your answers to questions. Good palliative care is based on good communication - so you are asked to interact with the text. The book was researched with a range of professionals working in the field, and with some of those receiving their care.
