In the context of the author''s claims that in the past twenty-five years the hospice movement has undergone major changes and has grown enormously - what was once a small rebellion against the the way dying people were cared for has become a small health care industry - in spite of this a majority of people are not aware of the work hospices do. Even professionals view the hospice as a small effort that is too limited to have a large impact on how the majority of people die. Written as an introduction for professionals, this book gives the reader an overall grasp of how hospice care is practiced, the challenges hospices currently face, and the direction the movement is taking.
