'Regrets of the dying should influence end of life care'


I enjoyed this article very much. As a hospice chaplain I'm constantly struck by how much good spiritual care nurses routinely offer -even if they are sometimes nervous about using that word. This is a good example of how well placed nurses are to engage in spiritual care - and dealing with regrets is part of spiritual care. I'm also very pleased that the writer was so clear about the mutual benefits of all of this - the wisdom of the dying as well as helping us to live our lives better, gives their regrets dignity and purpose.
