Palliative care is an approach to treatment of patients suffering from life-limiting illnesses that focuses on improving the quality of life for them and their families, by providing relief from physical, emotional and spiritual suffering. It is now recognised as a specialty and has become an integral part of good patient care in the continuum of treatments for cancer and chronic illnesses.
To be able to provide good palliative care requires both sound clinical knowledge and compassion. The editors and contributors of The Bedside Palliative Medicine Handbook have taken great care to provide readers with a clear, succinct and practical guide to palliative medicine, which will be useful to all medical practitioners by the patient's bedside.
