This pocket-sized OUP Specialist Handbook provides a wealth of information about the supportive and palliative care of patients with heart failure. . . I was impressed by the amount of information, clearly set out in bullet-point lists, and by the Table of Contents and the system of headings which make that information accessible. * Dr. Roger Woodruff, IAHPC Book Reviews *
A comprehensive approach to the psychological and psychosocial needs of heart failure patients and their caregivers is unique and presented in easy-to-read summaries. This is a useful tool for any professional working with clients in heart failure. * Doody's Reviews *
This is a clearly structured and transparently written guidebook directed at medical, nursing and allied professional specialists in heart failure, a more general cardiology population and palliative care staff. It aims to guide the identification of advanced heart failure and advise on its holistic management. * European Journal on Palliative Care, Jan 2013 *
Have the authors achieved their aim in producing of valuable practical 'pocket' reference? To me they have clearly succeeded in this, with a clear concise guide to the complexities of advanced heart failure, which should be a valuable resource to all those involved in the care of patients with this condition. * BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care, Jan 2013 *
