  1. Kenneth J. Doka

    Katherine Murray’s Integrating a Palliative Approach: Essentials for Personal Support Workers will be an essential and invaluable tool for personal service workers and their supervisors. It is full of useful–needed information covering every aspect of the dying process. It has a wonderful sensitivity to all involved in the dying process – patients, family members, children — and, of course, PSWs. And it is all presented in a clear and readable style.

  3. J. Donald Schumacher

    This book is a significant resource for both employers and nursing assistants themselves. Nursing Assistants are often the eyes and ears of the hospice and palliative care teams. In addition to their important role in providing physical care, they often support patients and families through the dying process. This resource is a must have for all hospice and palliative care managers and care providers.
