Born at the end of World War One into a prosperous London family, Cicely Saunders struggled at school before gaining entry to Oxford University to read Politics, Philosophy and Economics. As World War Two gained momentum, she quit academic study to train as a nurse, thereby igniting her lifelong interest in caring for others. Following a back injury, she became a medical social worker, and then in her late 30s, qualified as a physician. By now her focus was on a hugely neglected area of modern health services: the care of the dying. When she opened the world's first modern hospice in 1967 a quiet revolution got underway. Education, research, and clinical practice were combined in a model of 'total care' for terminally ill patients and their families that quickly had a massive impact. In Cicely Saunders: A Life and Legacy, David Clark draws on interviews, correspondence, and the publications of Cicely Saunders to tell the remarkable story of how she pursued her goals through the complexity of her personal life, the skepticism of others, and the pervasive influence of her religious faith. When she died in 2005, her legacy was firmly established in the growing field of hospice and palliative care, which had now gained global recognition.

Narrative Medicine In Hospice Care

Narrative medicine, an interdisciplinary field that brings together the studies of literature and medicine, offers both a way of understanding patient identity and a method for developing a clinician’s responsiveness to patients. While recognizing the value of narrative medicine in clinical encounters, including the ethical aspects of patient discourse, Tara Flanagan examines the limits of narrative practices for patients with cognitive and verbal deficits. In Narrative Medicine in Hospice Care: Identity, Practice, and Ethics through the Lens of Paul Ricoeur, Flanagan contends that the models of selfhood and care found in the work of Ricoeur can offer a framework for clinicians and caregivers regardless of the verbal and cognitive capabilities of a patient at the end of life. In particular, Ricoeur’s concept of patient identity connects with the narrative method of life review in hospice and offers an opportunity to address the religious and spiritual dimensions of the patient experience.

Once defiant of death--or even in denial--many American families and health care professionals are embracing the notion that a life consumed by suffering may not be worth living. Sociologist Roi Livne documents the rise and effectiveness of hospice and palliative care, and the growing acceptance that less treatment may be better near the end of life.

Told through the testimonies of those who knew him best, with contemporaneous photographs and extracts from Zorza's recorded conversations, the book gives an intriguing insight into the contradictory nature of this influential man. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the international development of hospice care, and will appeal to those drawn to the human narrative of twentieth-century conflicts in Europe"--back cover.

This wise and practical handbook, written by a palliative care physician and a priest with experience in hospice ministry, addresses the needs of the dying, their relatives and friends, and also those who provide support and care. Recognizing that these needs are physical, emotional, and spiritual, Care for the Dying draws on insights from current best practice in palliative care, pastoral experience, and theological reflection. It explores the following: --the availability of care for the dying person --communicating with the family --responding to a request for assisted suicide --forgiveness, reconciliation and anointing --saying goodbyes --the mystery of suffering --dying with dignity --supporting the bereaved --caring for the carers. Throughout, there is a helpful emphasis on understanding the care of the dying as a privilege as well as a responsibility, on the importance of proper self-care and of gaining strength from working as a team. Many people, including medical professionals and clergy, are fearful of what to say or do when faced with approaching death. This resource will deepen understanding and build courage and confidence.
