Judith Redwing Keyssar, Last Acts of Kindness: Lessons for the Living from the Bedsides of the Dying

REDWING IS THE RECIPIENT OF THE 2019 American Academy of Hospice & Palliative Care's Humanitarian Award!

WINNER, 2011 BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD, AMERICAN JOURNAL OF NURSING

When Plato was asked to sum up his life’s work, he simply stated, “Practice dying.” Last Acts of Kindness allows a glimpse into this practice through the stories of those who have lived and died among us.

As an RN and midwife to the dying, Keyssar speaks from her heart about her extensive experience in palliative care. She encourages us to examine our personal relationships to impermanence and to consider the changes needed in our healthcare system to better serve us all at the end of life.
