Patient Participation in Palliative Care

Christine Kalus

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses clinical psychology, a relative ‘latecomer’ to the field of specialist palliative care. It places clinical psychology in the context of the world of the users and potential users, beginning with a brief explanation of how a person becomes a clinical psychologist. This gives a sense of how their professional background may influence the way they work. The chapter also discusses the meaning of the term ‘user’ as understood by the profession.

Keywords:   clinical psychology, palliative care, potential users, clinical psychologist, professional background
