Reviews

Following in the footsteps of the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine, here is a comprehensive textbook covering all aspects of paediatric palliative care...The speciality of paediatric palliative care is barely 25 years old and this book is a testament to how far it has developed...Like its adult counterpart, this book will be the gold standard for paediatric palliative care and deserves a place in every department of paediatrics and hospices that care for children. * Roger Woodruff, Director of Palliative Care, Austin Health, Melbourne, Australia (from a review of the previous edition) *
...for the novice practitioner, this will allow one to build knowledge around the foundation of care, and will help the expert specialist practitioner to enhance and update one's expertise. It is recommended that all paediatric palliative care specialist practitioners should have a copy. * Oncology News (from a review of the previous edition) *
The specialty of paediatric palliative care is barely 25 years old and this book is a testament to how far it has developed. ... Like its adult counterpart, this book will be the gold standard for paediatric palliative care and deserves a place in every department of paediatrics and hospices that care for children. * IAHPC Newsroom (from a r eview of the previous edition) *
This book is an exceptional example of evidence-based and empirical knowledge of pediatric palliative care by expert authors. It provides a large body of knowledge, addresses pertinent issues, and guides readers to greater comprehension of the magnitude of conditions that face ill children, their parents and siblings, and the community as a whole ... Congratulations to these authors for compiling such a magnificent book. I do hope it is widely disseminated and used. * Doody's Notes, April 2013 *
This remains much the best book on paediatric palliative care that I have seen. If you work in paediatric palliative care, you should have a copy or at least access to one. * IAHPC Newsletter, April 2013 *
