Palliative medicine is a discipline that transcends many medical specialties and it can involve complex clinical care but ultimately delivering it properly can be a very worthwhile experience for a healthcare professional and their team. However, it may be that some general and standard medical textbooks and resources may not supply enough information to help a clinician satisfactorily fully manage a palliative care patient. In the past, I have sometimes referred to previous editions of this excellent handbook and was most interested to see the latest edition and how that shapes up.
