"The first edition of LGBTQ-Inclusive Hospice & Palliative Care: A Practical Guide to Transforming Professional Practice was the first book designed to change the way hospice and palliative care professionals approach their work with all patients and families, not just with those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, queer, and/or questioning. It was also the first book to contain clear, actionable strategies for palliative care and hospice physicians, advanced practice registered nurses, registered nurses, social workers, counselors, and chaplains to use in transforming care of all patients so that it's truly LGBTQIA-inclusive. Anchored in the evidence, extensively referenced, and written in plain language, the second edition of this award-winning book contains an expanded scope (incorporating intersex and asexual individuals more fully throughout), two new chapters, updated information, and new examples drawn from the author's personal experience as well as from the experiences of other lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, queer, questioning, intersex, and/or asexual (LGBTQIA ) patients, families, and hospice and palliative care professionals"--
