Malcolm Payne & Nigel Hartley 
The Creative Arts in Palliative Care 


Use of the arts in palliative care settings is a powerful and effective way of addressing the practical, psychological, social and spiritual issues faced by service users in end-of-life care.

The Creative Arts in Palliative Care uncovers the possibilities for using the creative arts and provides guidance on how to implement arts projects successfully. Part 1 focuses on designing objectives for the creative arts in palliative care – such as self-fulfilment, social participation, diversion from pain and other common symptoms – and managing creative arts services. Part 2 demonstrates the theory and principles in practice, with detailed case studies: each chapter draws on a real-life project, the approaches it employed and the outcomes achieved.

This book will be essential reading for healthcare professionals, arts practitioners and all those involved in providing palliative care services.
