    Review:

    "This book would be a valuable resource to any clinical area providing palliative care and would also be a source of information for nurses undertaking further education in the area of palliative care provision. While it is never over simplistic, the text would be beneficial not only to nurses new to palliative care but also to nurse specialists in the field ." Morven Miller, Research Assistant, School of Nursing and Midwifery, www.oncoserve.com
    useful resource for nurses undertaking post registration programmes of study in palliative care, with much in its content to promote thought and discussion ."www.justfornurses.co.uk
