This book focuses on the role of suffering experienced by patients with advanced illness and their families.

The essence of nursing care continually exposes nurses to suffering. Although they bear witness to the suffering of others, their own suffering is less frequently exposed. This slim volume attempts to give voice to the suffering that nurses witness in patients, families, colleagues, and themselves. By making this suffering visible, the authors wish to honor it and to learn from it.

Drs. Ferrell and Coyle are also the editors of Textbook of Palliative Nursing, 2nd edition (Oxford, 2006). Independently, they have worked more than 50 years in oncology nursing, caring for patients and working to improve the quality of care that patients receive.

Features:
* Only book to reflect upon the nature of suffering among patients and their families and the affect on the frontline providers of their care--nurses--and, in turn, the goals of the nursing profession.
* Written by two of the acknowledged worldwide leaders of palliative nursing--sure to generate great interest and excitement
