This volume critically explores and analyses the themes and pragmatics of advancing nursing practice in relation to cancer and palliative care.

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 should be a useful resource for cancer and palliative care nurses wanting to advance and lead practice effectively.
