Abstract

A fundamental principle of palliative care is that life should be affirmed and death viewed as the result of a normal process. This approach has had a profound impact on the way nurses in all settings view death and dying;yet surprisingly little has been published about the experiences of people aware of their impending death, and the way nurses care for them are affected. This book is the product of a research study which explored the complex issues surrounding death and dying in a hospice setting by reporting on the experiences of patients and their nurses as they unfold
