This chapter presents another short foreword to a book on psycho-social perspectives on Good Practices in Palliative Care in which Cicely Saunders reminds readers that the emphasis on symptom control in palliative care is ‘only the beginning’ — since to be effective it must focus much more widely on patients in their family and social contexts.
