This text introduces the reader to the key issues surrounding care of the dying patient, as well as highlighting the importance of context in the social management of dying. Written in a pragmatic style, it provides a foundation from which to consider the theoretical and practical concerns that are central to terminal care in institutional as well as community based settings. Illustrated with case studies that demonstrate how the themes of the book can be applied in practice, this text encourages readers to reflect on research findings so that they are stimulated to formulate their own ideas about caring for dying patients.
