End of life – the essential guide
Forward written by Ciaran Devane (CEO of MacMillan Cancer Support), who said: There is much wisdom in the pages of this book. It offers practical advice in a caring way and it is hard to say any of it is more or less important than the rest… Those of us who want to improve end of life care must understand some of the critical things which can have a disproportionately significant impact on whether someone has a good death or not.
The book has been short listed to receive an award at the British Medical Association Awards Dinner in September 2011.
Judy has also had an article printed in Nursing and Residential Care magazine on end of life care for people with dementia in January 2010 and was a studio guest at BBC Surrey and Sussex in September discussing her book. She was invited back to the studio in October to talk about grief.
