I have been employed with a hospice agency for two months and I am loving it. My nursing experience prior to this was med-surg. What I'm searching for is some type of educational guide specific to the hospice setting, something that will give me detailed info on disease processes and how to manage the symptoms. I can't find anything other than guides on medicines used for specific symptoms. Thank you.
I believe the Kaye book is called "Notes on Palliative Care" or something like that. I have it and it is a terrific resource.
You might want to check out the core curriculum book HPNA has. It covers just about everything you need to know as a hospice nurse, and if you are interested in certification in the future, it is a great study tool.
