This singular work offers a truly interdisciplinary team perspective on caring, presented by 21 veterans of hospice service representing the array of disciplines in effective teams-physicians, nurses, certified nurse assistants, social workers, chaplains, music therapists, bereavement counselors, a volunteer coordinator, and a volunteer of more than 26 years. Contributors share professional and personal experiences that encompass the medical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, interpersonal, social, cultural, and economic dimensions of dying and bereavement. These are brought together through a person-centered approach that champions knowing each person being cared for to create the necessary opportunity for communication and trust that are the hallmarks of high-quality hospice care.

Industry Reviews

"I have spent forty years in medical centers, but it was only after reading these essays that I came to fully appreciate what hospice brings to humanity. This is a great and needed addition to the medical and social literature.-Lowell M. Greenbaum, Ph.D. Medical College of Georgia, Emeritus, Dean of Graduate Studies, and VP for Research
