Living with Dying: A Guide to Palliative Care

Cicely Saunders, Mary Baines, and Robert Dunlop


The new edition of this book has been updated to incorporate recent advances in both the approach to, and treatment of, the terminally ill. Based on many years of monitoring clinical practice and research at St Christopher's Hospice, the author presents practical, balanced advice on the general ethical and medical principles of caring for dying patients. This will continue to be an invaluable handbook for all hospice physicians and nurses as a compassionate source of factual information.
