Value for money

I highly recommend this book. It is good value for money and all libraries should stock it as a key text. Although aimed at nurses and health professionals in palliative care, it would be useful for all healthcare professionals.

It is also a good text for nursing students seeking to become familiar with the principles surrounding palliative care.
