Compassion in Dying guidance offers a new approach to engaging people and communities in organising a good end of life

Nurses are vital to supporting patients and families in end of life care. However, it is sometimes difficult to start these conversations with patients and their families. Building on the experiences of its recent My Life, My Decision programme, the charity Compassion in Dying provides guidance to professionals working with people who want to think about their ongoing needs and wishes as they approach the end of life.
