The Hospice Movement: A Better Way of Caring for the Dying
Vintage Books, 1978 - Počet stran: 347
At a time when the end of life has become the subject of anguished medical and ethical debate, no book is more welcome than The Hospice Movement This modern classic outlines a bold and noble alternative to the high-tech nightmare that has all too often been our society's accepted approach to death: hospice instead offers caring communities where dying people are treated as human beings worthy of attention and respect. Widely recognized as the essential reference for all who deal with the terminally ill, the book has now been extensively updated with three new chapters that describe the hospice movement's response to AIDS and its evolution into an international phenomenon. The result is one of those rare works that initiate caregivers, family, and friends into a new understanding of death and dying, one that reconciles the medical, the social, and the spiritual.

If you like Natalie Angier or Mary Roach's bringing journalisty eyes into sciency places, you will like this book. Heavy on the personal stories of palliative care. Only a little dated and very lovely. Přečíst celou recenzi
