"Anne's contribution to our understanding of the needs of young people with cancer has been unparalleled and without her extraordinary insights our services would be that much poorer."
From the foreword by Simon Davies, CEO Teenage Cancer Trust

This topical and timely text provides valuable insights into the choices and experiences of palliative and end of life care for young people with cancer and other life limiting illnesses. With a focus on palliative care provision across a range of different clinical settings, this comprehensive new resource explores care in the home, the hospice and hospital. It looks at how and where families and young people can access palliative care, and what support is offered to attain their preferred place of death. Bereavement support for families is discussed, as well as a discussion of multidisciplinary work, interagency co-operation and resource issues.
