Launching April 2022, the new Oxford Textbook of PUBLIC HEALTH AND PALLIATIVE CARE
In the last 20 years, health promoting palliative care – the ‘new’ public health in palliative care – has grown strongly throughout the world, with many leading policy and practice innovations now making their way into the academic and professional literatures. There is now an international association, an international journal, an international conference series, numerous books and doctorial dissertations, and the inevitable wave of critique and reply that signals the arrival of a new perspective that has become part of our established offer, policies, and debates. The time is ripe for an international textbook reference work. It is our intention, alongside the contributors in this book, to provide that introductory reference.
