Abstract
Hospice and palliative care team members--especially social workers and counselors--will find the empirical evidence and compassionate advice they need to provide the most holistic psychosocial care possible to individuals who are dying or bereaved. Encompassing the patients' and families' journeys through diagnosis, treatment, recurrence, palliative care, and bereavement, this guide also identifies the key transitions that most dying patients and their families face, and describes the interventions that are most likely to help. Included throughout are personal reflections and experiences of social workers and other team members, common major challenges to the healthcare team, and important considerations for each transition. Practical resources appearingin every chapter include the Palliative Performance Scale, stage-appropriate assessment questions, intervention recommendations, case studies, and reflective activities.

Abstract
Dying and Death in Canada offers a comprehensive, up-to-date examination of dying, death, and bereavement from a Canadian perspective.
The third edition includes two new chapters that highlight trends and provide assessments of end-of-life care in Canada. Several new topics are covered, including assisted death, emerging trends in funerary practices and memorialization, and changing conceptualizations and interventions in the grieving process. The book also offers individual perspectives on dying and death from funeral directors, nurses, police officers, and others, told in their own words. An appendix lists recent and classic movies, television programs, documentary films, and other visual media sources dealing with dying and death.
