Advancing Practice in Cancer and Palliative Care critically explores and analyses the themes and pragmatics of advancing nursing practice in relation to cancer and palliative care. Written by a team of experienced practitioners and educationalists, each chapter considers key elements of advanced practice in terms of conceptual, practical and organisational themes. Case studies are used throughout to encourage the reader to take a reflective stance on the way in which the themes of the text can be applied to practice. The book will be a useful resource for cancer and palliative care nurses wanting to advance and lead practice effectively.
