BJ Miller, MD, a hospice and palliative medicine physician and former director of the Zen Hospice in San Francisco, has recently published A Beginner’s Guide to the End: Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death.
Miller and co-author Shoshana Berger have created an ‘all encompassing action plan for the end of life’. Ira Byock, MD, Founder and Chief Medical Director at the Institute for Human Caring says: “When it comes to the final journey, we are all beginners. Navigating the complexities of serious illness (and ageing) requires grace and grit. With elegant simplicity and tender, earthy honesty, this beginner’s guide explains how to prepare, what possible routes you might take, mis-turns to avoid and the beauty you might see along the way.”
