It is hoped that this user-friendly guide will help in the management of common palliative care problems. It is primarily aimed at those who have completed some basic training in palliative care but are not specialists in the field. It is also hoped that this handbook will be of benefit to people living with life-limiting illnesses other than cancer, such as HIV/AIDS. The four essential topics included are: the philosophy of palliative care, the need for good assessment, the importance of paediatric palliative care, and balanced care.
