Mary Kiely, in the Foreword This practical, thought-provoking guide provides the unemotional, clear and accurate advice necessary for communicating with patients in a palliative care setting. Completely up-to-date, this book includes new initiatives born of the End of Life Care Strategy (2008), and details the ethics of key issues in palliative care. Crucially, it considers the fine art of communication - the pivotal aspect of being a palliative care expert that is so difficult to quantify and teach. It uses genuine anecdotes and case-studies to bring theory to life and assist in everyday application. Communication in Palliative Care is a wide-ranging, invaluable resource to palliative care professionals across all clinical settings.
