Review from previous edition This is more than just a reference book: it is full of information on both the theoretical background of palliative care and the practical aspects of prescribing, symptom control and other aspects of managing this sometimes complex group of patients...It also includes useful chapters on palliation of non-malignant disease, an area that is often overlooked. * BMA Medical Book Competition 2010 *
...a remarkable book that will be useful for hospice and pallative care professionals as well as other readers. * Doody's Notes *
With a broadened remit to be accessible to non-medical readers this book is a resource for allied healthcare professionals as well as those from non-palliative care backgrounds. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles of holistic palliative care and a comprehensive summary of the pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to symptom management. The Oxford Handbook of Palliative Care 2nd edition provides an easy, accessible and applicable reference guide for healthcare professionals. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles of holistic palliative care. * uropean Journal of Palliative Care Medicine *
