    ‘The symptom management chapters are especially thorough and easy to translate into clinical decision-making, and the medical chapters present useful algorithms for clinical care. Each chapter also contains a summary of take-home points along with a useful list of references. An online version is also accessible with purchase of the book.

    This book combines a comprehensive yet concise approach to evidence-based palliative care. It is easy to navigate and references relevant, up-to-date data; it will be a useful tool both in the office and in the field for current palliative care practitioners.’ - Bonnie Chen, MD(Harvard Medical School) Doody 5 stars!
