Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care update

14 January 2022

Enhanced Palliative Care Textbook published

Pre-orders are open for Enhanced Palliative Care, a new textbook in line with Scottish Palliative Care Guidelines and the NES Framework for Palliative and End of Life Care. The textbook provides a comprehensive overview of the principal areas encountered whilst working with adult palliative and end-of-life patients, and their families. It is aimed at anyone involved in management and prescribing within non-specialist palliative care, both in hospitals and in the community, including paramedics, nurses, doctors, pharmacists, and other key health professionals.
