Summary
This book contains the views of clinicians and experts in religious and social studies. They have all from their own perspectives considered the dignity and welfare not only of those dying, but also of those around the patient prior to, during and after the event. The information contained in this book will hopefully not only ease the pain and fear of dying but also enable carers, friends and relatives to offer optimal help throughout the process
