    In Palliative Care, a Different Kind of Hope, Patrick J. Macmillan writes with precision, passion and power. He describes the human aspects of 16 patients in short, concise, easy to read chapters. He describes how the practice of palliative care can provide dignity and hope when curative medicine has nothing further to offer. He creates word pictures which illustrate the human condition. Examples include: " Sadness covered my heart the way the frost forms on blades of grass", p.43. In describing a patient whose 'spark' was vanishing: "As if her soul suffered an eclipse and the light would not return", p. 5 I freely acknowledge that I have had the joy and privilege of working side by side with Dr. Macmillan in his capacity as Medical Director of Palliative Care at a Level 1 Trauma Center. I have seen how his ability to treat patients with dignity and respect gives them reason to hope. I strongly recommend this book to all physicians, nurses, patients, and anybody...

    This is an excellent read. I have to agree with Paulette Barnett when she said, "It was one of the most compassionate informative books I have read." I highly recommend this book.

    Received my copy of Palliative Care today and never put it down until I had finished it. It was one of the most compassionate informative books I have read. And the fact that I know Dr. Patrick Macmillan and what a compassionate DR. he is only added to love of the book. A book that all should read.
