Cicely Saunders - Selected writings 1958-2004

£75.00

Product description

The mid-20th century saw the beginning of the new era of end-of-life care, with the institution of hospices offering a holistic approach to their patients, dealing not only with their physical & medical needs, but also social, emotional and spiritual needs.  This era was introduced by Cicely Saunders, a trained nurse, social worker and doctor, who dedicated her professional life to improving care of the dying and their bereaved relatives.  The first hospice, St Christopher's in London, was founded in 1967, and was followed by similar centres in almost every urban centre in the country.  This book includes a selection of her most important writings throughout a period of over 40 
years, aimed at a multi-disciplinary audience and still of enormous relevance to professionals working in the field of palliative medicine.

Dame Cicely Mary Strode Saunders OM DBE FRCS FRCP FRCN (1918-2005) was an English nurse, social worker, physician and writer. She is noted for her work in terminal care research and her role in the birth of the hospice movement, emphasising the importance of palliative care in modern medicine.  Her ideas about clinical care, education and research have been hugely influential, leading to numerous prizes and awards in recognition of her humanitarian achievements. 

Our book is in very good condition, with an equally good dust jacket showing minimal signs of wear to edges, but otherwise immaculate.  The book itself, bound in red cloth with silver title etc on the spine, is equally pristine externally, and inside, the binding is firm and all pages clean and bright.  The only visible blemish is a single thin dark line across the fore-edge of the textblock (see photo).
