Guidelines for Treating the "Whole" Person


An insight into why the palliative care speciality has earned its reputation for understanding and treating the “whole” patient is provided by new clinical practice guidelines from the National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care.

The guidelines, which identify eight areas of care and describe elements of best practice, focus of these specific areas of care: structure and processes, physical aspects, psychological and psychiatric aspects, social aspects, spiritual/religious/existential aspects, cultural aspects, care of the patient at the end of life, and ethical and legal aspects.
