Textbook of Palliative Medicine provides an alternative, truly international approach to this rapidly growing specialty. This textbook fills a niche with its evidence-based, multi-professional approach and global perspective ensured by the international team of editors and contributing authors. In the absence of an international curriculum for the study of palliative medicine, this textbook provides essential guidance for those both embarking upon a career in palliative medicine or already established in the field, and the structure and content have been constructed very much with this in mind.
With an emphasis on providing a service anywhere in the world, including the important issue of palliative care in the developing nations, Textbook of Palliative Medicine offers a genuine alternative to the narrative approach of its competitors, and is an ideal complement to them. It is essential reading for all palliative care physicians in training and in practice, as well as palliative care nurses and other health professionals in the palliative care team

"useful and easy to read ... This book is refreshingly different. The highly experienced editors have brought together over 150 authors, largely from North America and Western Europe, to produce a remarkably cohesive text ... I would definitely recommend this textbook as an addition to any library, although it is a significant investment."
―Dr Fiona Hicks, Palliative Medicine
"To a large degree, this internationally authored, comprehensive, 1100-page book has done and admirable job of reflecting the depth and complexity of the field. More than most medical textbooks, the Textbook of Palliative Medicine deal with organizational, educational, and research topics ... Palliative medicine specialists will find this to be a superb reference material for the provision of compassionate care for patients with serious illness and their families. Every medical school and hospice should have a copy of this book."
―Journal of the American Medical Association
