“The last stages of life should not be seen as defeat, but rather as life’s fulfillment. It is not merely a time of negation but rather an opportunity for positive achievement. One of the ways we can help our patients most is to learn to believe and to expect this.”
Cicely Saunders, 1965–First published in American Journal of Nursing; republished in Cicely Saunders: selected writings by David Clark Oxford University Press, 2006
We dedicate this book to the memory of Dame Cicely Saunders. In its pages, we have sought to provide for the core skills that a clinician needs to make it possible for every man, woman, and child that, when dying is necessary, it becomes life’s fulfillment.
