As palliative care continue to evolve, increasingly influencing the care on non-malignant disease and reaching into different cultures around the world, this book addresses the very important question as to what are the best methods of education for palliative care...[it is] both detailed and comprehensive and would be essential reading for anyone involved with setting up or running palliative care education courses. * Roger Woodruff, Director of Palliative Care, Austin Health, Melbourne, Australia *
