«This book is an excellent resource, full with information from leaders in the field of palliative medicine [...] An essential textbook for all professionals working within the palliative care arena.»

Helen Reeves, Clinical Nurse Manager, St Giles Walsall Hospice, Nursing Times

«This is an expertly informed text that remains authoritative and detailed. Seeing all these chapter titles in print also illustrates how broad palliative care is, providing a useful reminder of how many different areas and topics are part of its practice [...] Those new to the book will find what the editors hope to have created: an authoritative reference text with a global perspective on the field.»

Guy Schofield, Clinical Research Fellow, Imperial College, London; in the European Journal of Pallia

«Updated, well organised, and the coverage is good [...] I think it remains the best book on palliative medicine on the market.»
