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


I think there is one possible problem here. Although Ms. Ware's piece strikes a chord, one has to ask a couple of questions: is it true and is it verifiable? Note that the beginning of the comment says: 'palliative care worker Bronnie Ware' - well, she might have been, but she certainly isn't now - website If you visit her blog, there's not that much evidence to support her care work. At best, this is just a series of anecdotal observations made by someone who, in her own words, 'a very fine story teller'. Now ask yourself - if you were caring for the dying, would you question them about regrets? Is that ethical?
