Finding the words

This book is a resource for health and social care professionals whose work brings them into contact with people and families at the end of life. It accompanies the DVD Finding the Words and can be used individually or in small groups, with or without a facilitator/trainer, to help explore the issues discussed on the DVD and some of the evidence surrounding end of life conversations.
