Description

Frustrated by his own father’s refusal to accept lung cancer and impending death, a young doctor confronts his own preconceptions about how caregivers should help the terminally ill. He discovers a disturbing truth about medical doctors: they are not trained to aptly deal with death and dying. Experience forces him to reject the popular belief that acceptance is necessary for a good death. Some will die in peace, but many will die in denial or anger—and that is necessary for them. Dr. Sacco offers a practicing physician's insight to caregivers and families with dying loved ones: rather than impose their own conceptions, it is the caregiver’s responsibility to understand how their dying charges are coping with illness and death and to simply support them through the experience.
