Cicely Saunders - Founder of the Hospice Movement

Selected Letters 1959-1999

David Clark

Recognizing the unmet needs of dying patients in hospital, Dame Cicely established the hospice and, with others, conceived of a comprehensive approach to dealing with the variety of symptoms and suffering often experienced by patients with progressive debilitating disease. This book provides an insight into the establishment of the hospice movement and its development world-wide as recorded through the letters of its founder. The letters are split into three distinct periods, each linked with an essay by Professor David Clark.
