In April 2008 Sarah Winch’s husband, Lincoln, died from kidney cancer that was diagnosed only four months earlier. He was 48.

Sarah and Lincoln prepared as best they could for his death. Her 30 years as a registered nurse and ethicist, specifically focused on end-of-life care, did not fully prepare Sarah for Lincoln’s death, but it did help them plan for the best death possible.

This book advocates for taking control of the final stages of life. It opens up the conversation around death and encourages us to become more informed about how we want to die.

This is an intimate, compassionate and practical guide, from someone with uniquely relevant personal and professional experience.

Industry Reviews

'In my decades as a medical practitioner, I have come to know that while death is inevitable, few people understand how to approach the physical, emotional and spiritual experience of dying. The Best Death is a practical and valuable resource for people who are facing the final challenge of their lives.' Professor Kerryn Phelps AM
