Communicating with family carers
This chapter focuses on the family in terms of a social care and family systems approach in palliative care. It outlines some of the communication issues and challenges to family work in palliative care and considers the family as a group with the patient as an integral part instead of simply addressing the needs of family carers as a separate entity. It stresses the need to focus on altering public attitudes and enhancing family and community resilience and capacity so that families and communities themselves are resourced and enabled to respond sensitively and compassionately to the needs of the dying and the bereaved.
