About this book


While we think that the outline for the Textbook on Palliative Care covers the most important issues necessary for this Textbook, we offer updates to the original outline in the light of reviewers’ suggestions. Our new approach will be to modify the structure and use broader Sections that include the Chapters (instead of 27 Sections, we would have 10 sections with many chapters). Some of the suggested chapter topics under the respective sections are mentioned below. The sections will expand further and it is only the tentative outline delineated here.
