This is an edited collection of 13 scholarly essays covering all aspects of ethics in relation to hospice care, and what they may mean to us on a personal, professional, organisational and even societal level... This book will be of particular interest to anyone who works in palliative care and has a special interest in ethical issues, and should probably be read by team leaders, administrators and those involved in planning the future development of hospice care. (IAHPC Newsletter)
The strength of this book is its articulation of a unique hospice philosophy of end-of-life care and the way it traces how this philosophy challenges ― and is challenged by ― the categories of bioethics. (Doody's Notes)
