It includes, in addition to the basics of hospice and palliative care, content on pediatric palliative care, ethics, advance care planning, the challenges of providing palliative care in hospitals, intensive care units, long term care, and assisted living settings, and the economic and policy trends in the palliative care and hospice fields and has 46 contributors.
