Oxford University Press

In her later years, Cicely Saunders produced many forewords to the books of other writers. The first of these to be reproduced here was written for Norman Autton's Pain: An Exploration, first published in 1986. She declares the book an admirable description of the search for an understanding of pain that draws on the author's long experience as a hospital chaplain. It is a book that has much to teach both professionals and those who are themselves experiencing pain.

Keywords:   Cicely Saunders, Norman Autton, hospital chaplain, understanding
