Additional Information

Following publication of the first print edition in 1993, the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine rapidly established itself as the definitive textbook on the subject. Each edition has received widespread critical acclaim, and the book is used across the world by a wide range of health care professionals involved in the care of patients with a terminal illness, or chronic, progressive conditions. Existing readers who automatically turn to the textbook will welcome this new fourth edition of their familiar reference; whilst it will prove invaluable to a new generation of palliative care professionals.

The Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine has continually evolved, keeping pace with the rapidly changing face of palliative care. Geoffrey Hanks and Nathan Cherny - the original editors of the textbook - are now joined by four new editors: leaders in the field from the US, UK, and Norway who give the textbook an increased global perspective. The content of the textbook emphasises the multi-disciplinary nature of palliative care throughout, and the 100 chapters cover all areas of palliative care, including: individual professional roles; ethics; communication, psychiatric, spiritual, and psychosocial issues; research in palliative care; the treatment of symptoms; and the role of palliative care in non-malignant diseases and conditions.

The online version of the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine contains the full text of the print edition (which can be browsed by the contents list or searched), links from references in the text to external sources (via PubMed, ISI, and CrossRef), and all figures and illustrations from the print edition, downloadable into PowerPoint.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I am fascinated by the field of pallative care, being a medical doctor preparing to be board certified in palliative care. In preparation for the board exam, I purchased both this book and Eduardo Bruera's Textbook of Palliative Medicine.
I must say this is the better book. It has 1666 pages so is not light reading, but treats the subject matter in greater depth than Bruera's textbook.
I have not yet found a board review type condensed book for exam preparation, so it is challenging to have to go through hundreds of pages to prepare for an exam. Nevertheless, this is a comprehensive and useful book.
This textbook is fantastic for new practitioners and experts. Any practitioner who comes in contact with palliative care patients or has interest in pall care should have this textbook, it's informative and comprehensive. It includes most cases dealt with in palliative and hospice care, very happy that I bought it, I will be using it for a very long time
This tome is a wonderful reference for the practicing Hospice Physician. Great chapters for problems that arise on a daily basis. I wish I had found it while studying for the Boards (passed) because I spent alot of time researching topics which are all completely treated in this book.
