Nicol and Nyatanga provide a clear and concise overview of palliative care and end of life care in contemporary nursing. It is informative, easy to read and beneficial to nursing students and those who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of the subjects. The case studies complement the information provided and help to bridge the theory to practice link. The activities would help those who wish to reflect on their feelings, knowledge and development.
