Review from previous editionThis refreshingly jargon-free book informs, guides, educates and generally gives clarity to what managing volunteers in palliative care is about and how complex this work really is... I only wish it had been published when I first started! (Volunteering Magazine)
Derek Doyle is to be congratulated on producing another excellent volume for palliative are. I think that any palliative care service with volunteers should obtain a copy for their VSM, as a token of support and gratitude. (IAHPC Website)
This 223-page text will prove invaluable for new voluntary service managers, and an aid to better management and performance in many established services. Definitely recommended reading. (Centre for Palliative Care Research and Education, Australia)
