There is often no end-of-life care training. For some, terminal illness provides a transformational time of increased self awareness around spiritual or faith-based questions. But it also raises practical considerations such as how to talk to children, the impact of dementia, how to make informed choices about end-of-life care and how to care for the caregivers.
In this exceptional video, Peg Armstrong offers insights on 31 topics that arise frequently during the transition process – the time between making a decision to stop medical treatment and when death actually occurs.
