End-of-Life Communication in the ICU
Talking to patients and their families about end-of-life issues can be difficult and stressful. This book looks at ways different cultures view death and then further explores how health care providers around the world communicate about such sensitive issues as withholding or withdrawing life support and discussing options when the outcome is uncertain. By offering a better understanding of cultural differences in attitudes about death and methods of communications about end-of-life issues, the coverage in this important book helps prepare healthcare practitioners to be better communicators - both within and outside of their own cultures.
