- 2Feb 8, '07 by AtlantaRNThere is a red book at the office called Symptom control in Hospice & Palliative care. IT's $35 online at www.hospiceworld.org under the bookshop. Worth the money...most books i've found on amazon have more to do with reimbursement and the like, which is important if we want to get paid; but I want to know what the standard of practice is in the hospice setting.

Another good pamplhelt is Gone from my sight by Barbara Karnes. You can also get alot of imformation from the NHCPO web site. www.nhcpo.org.

- 2Aug 27, '07 by rmw44I did not see any mention of Ira Byock's books in this post but may have missed it. His "Dying Well" book was as impactful to me as "Final Gifts". There is an audio discussion and download of the "Dying Well" book that is a great resource for learning on the road. I burn the sessions to CD and listen between visits. Dr. Byock is strong in the political advancement of hospice services but his DW book gave a perspective from a son, a doctor, and a friend. He has written quite a few resources articles that I use consistently in marketing hospice services.
