The initial chapter sets the scene with descriptions of palliative care in the past, present and future, and is a great introduction for professionals who do not work in this area. The final chapter on support for practitioners in palliative care is particularly useful and covers a good range of topics. Though aimed at nurses and students who wish to prepare for the challenges of working with patients receiving palliative care, it would be useful for any healthcare professional, as the focus on compassion is equally relevant to other areas of patient care. It would be particularly appropriate for nursing students seeking to become familiar with the principles surrounding palliative care. The book represents good value for money and all libraries should stock it. This timely book clarifies and demystifies many of the urban myths about revalidation and confirmation.
