Description About the author
 
How do we think about death? How do we think about the dying? Whatís the current state of palliative and end-of-life health care, and how can we improve it? And how do we give care without becoming emotionally and spiritually depleted? In Awake at the Bedside, pioneers of palliative and end-of-life care ó as well as doctors, Dharma teachers, chaplains, poets, and caregivers of all kinds ó offer insights on incredibly challenging questions like these.
This book isnít about dying. Itís about life and what life has to teach us. Itís about caring and what giving care really means. Equal parts instruction manual and spiritual testimony, it includes specific instructions and personal accounts to inspire, counsel, and teach. An indispensable resource for anyone involved in hospice work or caregiving of any kind.
