Details

Precise and helpful advice for those involved with the care of dying people. Cicely Saunders, founder of the modern hospice movement, defined "total pain" as being emotional, social and spiritual distress, which accentuates physical pain. Without addressing each of these factors, she argued, we fail to control pain and distress. When a patient is dying, this becomes more important than ever, yet the pressures of modern living mean that the spiritual needs of patients are all too often ignored. This guide to spiritual care is so valuable because it enables us all to recognise psychosocial and spiritual distress in the dying. It is applicable to dying people of any faith or none; as the authors observe, "we share a common humanity if not always a common faith". A4 booklet.
