Description

Many people fear dying, many accept it as a simple fact of life, and many are unsure how to feel about death. Like our births, our deaths are unique to us but we should all feel loved and cared for when facing the end of life. It's clear that many dying people do not get good care simply due to the mindset of "they're dying, why bother?". It's important that we create a health care system that assures the dying not too little and not too much care. Working Together: We Can Help People Get Good Care When They Are Dying outlines the necessity of this health care system, how we should approach the development of said system, the current forms of care for dying people, as well as the issues with our current system. The book also features suggestions to ameliorate the situation.
