Roger Woodruff, IAHPC Newsletter This book is written by four experts in communication (although it is noted that Parnell is also a nurse). It is written about and for the palliative care scene in the USA, but I think the principles discussed make it relevant elsewhere. If you work in palliative care and wonder whether your communication skills could be improved, or if you teach about communication in palliative care, then this book has a lot to offer.
Every clinical encounter encompasses an exchange of information, emotions and impressions. This book empowers nurses and other clinicians to use each encounter as a therapeutic opportunity. Extensively researched and authoritative, Communication in Palliative Nursing is a trove of resources for educators and investigators seeking to advance patient- and family-centered practice. - Ira Byock, MD, author of Dying Well and The Best Care

Wittenberg, Goldsmith, Ragan, and Parnell's updates to Communication in Palliative Nursing truly reflect a down to earth approach for developing the skillful and empathic communication techniques needed for effective palliative and end-of-life care conversations. Changes to the COMFORT Model, such as "Connect" and "Making meaning" underscore the importance of the nurses role in bearing witness to patient and family suffering. The text shares poignant examples
of how nurses can guide patients and families toward accurately understanding their palliative story, while also helping them to find meaning in their suffering. The authors deftly interweave clinical stories to illustrate communication strategies, providing a realistic "how-to" for nurses to incorporate
in their everyday practice. - Mary J. Isaacson, RN, PhD, CHPN, Associate Professor, Graduate Nursing, South Dakota University College of Nursing, Rapid City, SD
It is with great enthusiasm that I read Drs. Wittenberg, Goldsmith, Ragan, and Parnell's new edition of Communication in Palliative Nursing. If we are to have a transformation in the delivery of care, we need to be more intentional and nuanced in our communication. The updates in this second edition resulted from iterative adaptations to our evolving field and have increased its relevancy and broadened its impact. I especially appreciate the books
increased attention to exploring the Social Determinants of Health and recognizing how diversity too often equals disparity. We all benefit from a deeper understanding of how to create meaningful relationships with diverse people and this text provides practical skills to help us do so. - Shirley Otis-Green, MSW, MA,
