Janet's skill in this book lies in her ability to combine theory with narrative and natural science with humanity to create a text that resonates deeply.bringing to light the message that intellectual knowledge is nothing if not accompanied by sensitive delivery and humanity. Mary Kiely in the Foreword This practical thought-provoking guide provides the unemotional clear and accurate advice necessary for communicating with patients in a palliative care setting. Completely up to date this book includes new initiatives born of the End of Life Care Strategy (2008) and details the ethics of key issues in palliative care. Crucially it considers the fine art of communication - the pivotal aspect of being a palliative care expert that is so difficult to quantify and teach. It uses genuine anecdotes and case studies to bring theory to life and assist in everyday application. Communication in Palliative Care is a wide-ranging invaluable resource for palliative care professionals across all clinical settings.

About the Author

Clinical Nurse Specialist in Palliative Care, Huddersfield


'There is a wide breadth of subject matter, including refreshingly clear guidance on communication challenges around resuscitation, nutrition, the possibility of fatal haemorrhage and end-of-life planning. In addition, the author offers guidance on ethical principles, futility, cancer clinical trials and managing interprofessional conflict. Key themes emerge, notably the importance of applying simple principles in the face of complexity and of professionalism. The emotional aspects of communication are sensitively covered.' Claire Bates, Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK 'There are a few books now available, offering to teach you the fundamentals of communication in palliative care, but this one stands out. Straight forward, there are no pages of theory here. Eminently practical, born of years of use, yet kind and caring. Personal experience and clinical anecdotes from many years of palliative care illuminate her teaching. If you are new to the field, or you are looking for a primer in palliative care communication, you could do much worse than to learn from Janet Dunphy.' Roger Woodruff, International Association for Hospice & Palliative Care News; November 2012
