Featured as an essential purchase on Doody's Core Titles List for 2018

Helen Reeves, Clinical Nurse Manager, St Giles Walsall Hospice, Nursing Times This book is an excellent resource, full with information from leaders in the field of palliative medicine [...] An essential textbook for all professionals working within the palliative care arena.

Guy Schofield, Clinical Research Fellow, Imperial College, London; in the European Journal of Palliative Care, Vol 23, No. 1 (2016) This is an expertly informed text that remains authoritative and detailed. Seeing all these chapter titles in print also illustrates how broad palliative care is, providing a useful reminder of how many different areas and topics are part of its practice [...] Those new to the book will find what the editors hope to have created: an authoritative reference text with a global perspective on the field.

Roger Woodruff; Hospicecare.com, January 2016 Updated, well organised, and the coverage is good [...] I think it remains the best book on palliative medicine on the market.
