Finishing Our Story

Preparing for the End of Life

Gregory L. Eastwood, MD

  • Uses straight-forward language to provide fundamental information about preparing for the process of dying
  • Discusses how dying has changed over the past decades and why that is important
  • Defines what is meant by "quality of life", stressing the implications of making one's wishes known and how to ensure that they are followed
  • Addresses more difficult topics such as palliative care, physician-assisted death and other forms of suicide at the end of life, and what it means to create the final chapter of the narrative of our life
