Dying at home leads to ‘more peace and less grief’


Anonymous | 11-Oct-2015 4:28 pm I write about known end-of-life, and the uncertainty associated with exactly when a patient will die: there is a serious issue with 'earlier than anticipated but known EoL deaths at home' (where EoL means 'predicted to be within the final year of life). Your patient on the acute ward, is probably not part of my 'issues' - and there is very little about death which is 'comic'.
