Being a catalyst to others during end of life care.
May 14, 2019
I am a Registered Nurse at a world renowned Cancer Institute. Death and dying has always been an extremely hard and difficult conversation to talk about, especially in my work setting where healthcare providers continue to treat cancer patients with aggressive treatments and/or research studies. This book offers real life situations and tools to help anyone in an extremely hard and difficult situation make positive steps forward in living out their life to the fullest. I have gained more self satisfaction and purpose in my own life by accepting the fact that death is apart of life and it does not have to be all gloom. Through this beautifully written book, I have better assisted in the care of patients and their loved ones as a whole during their final days and/or hours of LIFE with peace and dignity.
