Palliative Care: Bringing Comfort and Hope is a textbook written by nurses for nurses. It will be of value to those undertaking palliative care diplomas and degrees, as well as be of interest to other disciplines who have an active role in delivering palliative care in a variety of settings. The book reflects the rapid development of palliative nursing as an emerging specialty. It helps in the process of defining palliative nursing and how it interfaces with other disciplines within the specialty.

The text is divided into three sections and comprehensively, yet sensitively, covers all aspects of palliative nursing. Key themes covered include pain control, symptom control, loss and grief, and handling loss.
