Product Description

Review

This is more than just a reference book: it is full of information on both the theoretical background of palliative care and the practical aspects of prescribing, symptom control and other aspects of managing this sometimes complex group of patients...It also includes useful chapters on palliation of non-malignant disease, an area that is often overlooked. (BMA Medical Book Competition 2010)

...a remarkable book that will be useful for hospice and pallative care professionals as well as other readers. (Doody's Notes)

I would highly recommend it to everyone who is involved in end-of-life care.The book helped me to find the answers for questions and dilemas re palliative care.I read the whole book at once - I could not stop till the last page. (Amazon.co.uk Review)

With a broadened remit to be accessible to non-medical readers this book is a resource for allied healthcare professionals as well as those from non-palliative care backgrounds. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles of holistic palliative care and a comprehensive summary of the pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to symptom management. The Oxford Handbook of Palliative Care 2nd edition provides an easy, accessible and applicable reference guide for healthcare professionals. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles of holistic palliative care. (European Journal of Palliative Care Medicine)

Book Description

Highly commended in the medicine category of the British Medical Association Book Awards 2010

This handbook is excellent for those who are involved with palliative care. this book provides a excellent and detailed knowledge of medication, spiritual involvement and all other aspects of knowledge needed when providing end of life care. A easy to read and understand book, which is small enough to carry around with you.

Format: Flexibound
This is a precious book: useful and complete, it's really a masterpiece and I strongly recommend it. It's practical, up to date and easy to consult. I'm a bit sorry that, in a book dedicated to palliative cares, the Authors were forced to accept euthanasia, as no more than an option already at the patients' disposal in different Countries: nothing could be farther from a PC-dedicated physician.
Finally, as I come from a non English speaking Country, I was a bit puzzled with the new wave of using double-sex pronouns (he/she), as if the male pronouns couldn't be used with a sexual independent meaning (e.g. manhood).
