Schaffer and Norlander help us to understand that, perhaps, one of the most valuable tools is our ability to communicate. Their work adds to the vital discussion of how to best care for the dying patient by teaching nurses the importance of actively listening and being present to patients and their families at the end of life. In doing so, they significantly enhance the knowledge of the art of nursing. --Kerstin McSteen, RN, MS, ACHPN Caring for patients at the end of life is one of the most challenging tasks in nursing practice.
