This book offers extensive knowledge and information concerning issues related to death and dying, incorporating relevant literature and research that will provide students and practitioners in this area with current reflection and theory, in addition to promoting further critical thinking and research.
A good resource for tutors and learners based around end of life care and its response.
Well presented book easy to read
not that different from texts already being used on the course
Was hoping for more philosophical discussions on death rather than the more specific research questions that the book covers. Too many articles are out of the scope of the subject.
I think that the chapters that focus around the end of life will be of interest to our students as they explore some of the issues. I have also found the writing around the topics of research in sensitive areas of great use to my MSc students.
Adopting the anthology instead
This is an excellent book - covering a range of issues for student to get to grips with.
This is a very interesting and helpful textbook that uses evidence based practice, reflections and experience to help anyone involved in end of life care of a wide variety of patients.
It covers all aspects of care, ethics and religious beliefs that help the reader explore and challenge the contemporary issues involved.
Focus on managing death and dying
Death and Dying: A reader covers everything necessary for a learner within any health or social care discipline pertaining to this very pertinent subject
A very useful and readable book to read alongside sociology of birth literature. I think it is vitally important to draw parallels between these two rites of passage.
A thoughtful exploration of a topic essential to nurse training.
Good text for students who want to deleve deeper into end of life issues
