Hospital-Based Palliative Care Teams

The Hospital-Hospice Interface

Second Edition

R. J. Dunlop and J. M. Hockley

When the first edition of this book was written, there were only a few advisory palliative care teams working in hospitals. Since then the number of teams has grown rapidly. The concept of these teams is now widely accepted but there is an increased need for new information about setting up a team, how they work, and how effective they are. This book looks at the challenges of bringing palliative care into the acute hospital setting, reviewing the needs of patients, their families and careers, and also covers the problems, both theoretical and practical, that may be encountered.
