A new manual on Children’s Palliative Care has been published by Springer this week. This manual enables individuals working in children’s palliative care (CPC) globally to learn through engaging real-world cases. The aim is to provide a clinical case-based resource that is globally relevant and accessible to those working in CPC. Drawing on case histories from around the world that reflect key issues and elements of CPC, it provides a practical approach grounded in experience. It addresses multidisciplinary care in the management of children and their families; discusses cases from an international perspective, and shares examples from a variety of countries, utilising cases across a range of ages and conditions, demonstrating holistic care. It represents the first case-based manual on global CPC and is endorsed and promoted by the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN). The printed version of the book will be available from the 1st May but the ebook is now available from the Springer website. Copies of the printed version can be ordered from the Springer website and Amazon.
ICPCN members get a 20% discount as of April 20 2020, and some chapters of the book will be free access in April as part of the Springer Nature 2020 Year of the Nurse and the Midwife social media campaign.
