the Care of the Dying
First published in Better Health (May 1961), pp. 18–20.
This paper shows the willingness of Cicely Saunders to write for a wide variety of publications and audiences, even from an early stage in her writing career. It appeared in a now long-forgotten magazine called Better Health and was written not just for nurses working in the community, but also for family carers of terminally ill people. It detailed some of the typical problems and concerns which can arise in the final stages of life and the frustrations which patients and carers may experience, as well as giving simple and practical advice on how they can be overcome.
