Description

In What Dying People Want, an internationally renowned palliative care physician offers a profound and practical book about living with a terminal illness. Dr. David Kuhl provides guidance, solace, and helpful strategies for people who are terminally ill and their families and caregivers.Facing death, and the fear and anxiety that arise from it, is part of the human experience. Though much has been done to address the physical pain suffered by those with a terminal illness, Western medicine has been slow to understand and alleviate the psychological and spiritual distress that comes with the knowledge of death. In What Dying People Want, Dr. Kuhl begins to bridge that gap. He does so by addressing end-of-life realities - physical, psychological, and spiritual - through his own experiences as a doctor and through the words and experiences of people who live with the knowledge that they are dying.show more
