The second edition of the Textbook of Palliative Medicine builds upon the strengths of the previous edition providing an alternative, truly international approach to this ever growing specialty. With fully updated chapters this textbook expands upon its unique evidence-based, multi-professional approach and global perspective ensured by the international team of editors and contributing authors. In the absence of an international curriculum for the study of palliative medicine, this textbook continues to provide the essential guidance for those both embarking upon a career in palliative medicine or already established in the field, and the structure and content have been constructed very much with this in mind. A completely new section on Supportive Care is incorporated with chapters on 'Chemotherapy and radiation therapy induced emesis' and 'Mucositis'. With an emphasis on providing a service anywhere in the world, including the important issue of palliative care in the developing nations, the Textbook of Palliative Medicine offers a genuine alternative to the narrative approach of its competitors, and is an ideal complement to them. It is essential reading for all palliative care physicians in training and in practice, as well as palliative and support care nurses and other health professionals in the palliative care team.
