We recommend it as a necessary resource for every palliative care and hospice team, and we suggest it as an important reference for all social workers and social work trainees practicing in health care. Additionally, the book provides valuable information for leaders of health care systems and for policy makers who are preparing to face the challenge of creating large-scale interventions to meet the needs of this patient population. * Journal of Palliative Care, Jan 2013 *
