`Review from previous edition This is a book that should be widely read. As its title suggests, it provides the tools to make the sort of changes that make a difference. It would be of value to most hospital doctors, general practitioners in the UK and contains much interest for Europe and North America GPs and is packed with useful information . . . I would highly recommend this book to all those professionals involved in looking after dying patients.' European Journal of Cancer Care, 13 `This book deserves to be widely read and will hopefully lead to the more widespread use of the Pathway, or locally adapted versions of it, both within and without specialist palliative care units.'
