When Treatment Fails

How medicine cares for dying children

David J. Bearison

  • Cognetly captures the voices of those caring for children at end-of-life in order to convey the context of such care - the complications, disagreements and unexpected setbacks
  • Documents 20 stories of end-of-life care in paediatrics organised by the following themes: witholding or withdrawing curative treatments, pain and suffering, staff communicating with patients and families, staff relating with one another, staff coping and moving on, education and training of staff in end-of-life care, and patients and families reacting to end-of-life care
