Teamwork in Palliative Care: Fulfilling Or Frustrating?
Teamwork is a complex but essential component of palliative care. The needs of people suffering from a life-threatening illness are diverse, and it is rare for one professional alone to provide adequate care; the skills of others are needed to ensure a holistic approach. This book explores the different aspects of team working in palliative care.
