Surprisingly, there is no full bibliography of the work of the acknowledged founder of the modern hospice movement, who celebrates her eightieth birthday this year. This, therefore, is the first paper in a series which will have two purposes. Firstly, it is an attempt to assemble a complete bibliography of the published writings of Dame Cicely Saunders, from 1958 to the present day; it will be published in four parts, each covering a period of 10 years. Secondly, the bibliography has been annotated with a view to providing an introduction to some of the key points contained in these works. It is intended to serve as a guide to students, practitioners and scholars interested in better understanding the work of Cicely Saunders. The bibliography is not, of course, to be viewed as a substitute for reading the original works. Indeed it is hoped that it will serve to make these more accessible to interested readers who wish to pursue the material in greater depth. It is anticipated that the bibliography will further inform the recognition of Cicely Saunders’ remarkable and multi-faceted contribution to the work of hospice and palliative care, stimulating further commentary and discussion.
