This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

"
The book is easy to read and is essential to all who work and care for those at the end of life.

--David Shields, RN, MSN, QTTT
Assistant Professor of Nursing
Capital University

The book is thought provoking and, if you are like me, you will be assessing (consciously or subconsciously) how good you or your service are at providing holistic care around the time of death. It deserves to be widely read and I hope it starts many a conversation.
