In this thoroughly revised fourth edition of Palliative Care, Roger Woodruff draws on recent research and new developments in treatment to survey the principles of palliative care and related ethical issues.

The author contributes to the delivery of better care to more patients with a terminal illness, through thorough analysis and application of methods of pain relief and treatment of other symptoms in the terminally ill patient. All the work is firmly grounded in an evidence based approach and is thoroughly referenced to the latest research in the area.
