I thought this was a gem of a little book . . . it is a pocket-sized and succinct guide to the psychological and psychiatric problems encountered in palliative care, not just with the oncology patients, but I think it will be of value to any doctors or nurses working in palliative care. * Dr. Roger Woodruff, IAHPC Book Reviews *
This book provides up-to-date, referenced information brought together into one punchy source, and will undoubtedly prove useful to those working in the palliative care setting. * Christian Hosker, European Journal of Palliative Care Book Review *
