Registered Nurse, Educator and Researcher in End of Life Care


“Increasing longevity has distorted many facets of our current world, including acceptance of death. People facing a life-limiting illness may feel the pressure of family and loved ones who ask them to keep trying to survive - using up vast resources of finances, healthcare, and emotional and psychological support to do so. When a person has decided that their time is at an end, they should be able to openly gather their family and friends, say their goodbyes, and die with their dignity intact and with their choice of medical assistance."
