This book presents clear and sensitive guidance for nurses and health care professionals on all aspects of dealing with patient deaths. Advice ranges from coping with your own emotions and those of relatives, to all the practical arrangements which have to be made. It includes advice on sitting with dying people, lists of services offering help and counselling, and facts for every situation - when to call the coroner, organ donation, wills, and how death is viewed by people of different faiths.
