Product description

Review

Meina Dubetz has written a powerful book filled with her own personal experiences and the knowledge she has gained during her nursing career. When Death Comes Knocking for Your Patients is an excellent resource and a valuable tool for the new healthcare professional in Palliative care. It's also a reminder about why many of us entered this corridor of nursing many years ago.

When Death Comes Knocking for Your Patients is extremely powerful and moving. The author's heartfelt wisdom gently provides guidance and support to readers, nurses, and family members as they move along their journey with death and grief. This book allowed me to explore my own various emotions related to life and death. I had goose bumps throughout and couldn't put it down.

Real, relatable, and relevant. Meina Dubetz shares deeply moving, often agonizing stories from her career as an oncology and palliative care nurse, as well as her experiences as a daughter, mother, family member, and friend. When Death Comes Knocking for Your Patients will captivate readers while educating them on death and dying. Dubetz tackles tough topics, such as crossing professional boundaries, medical assistance in dying, and caring for a dying colleague. She also offers practical, tangible solutions and suggestions for the inevitable and innumerable challenges that arise when caring for patients and their loved ones as death approaches. Included are profound lessons for novice and experienced nurses alike, but those lessons are not limited to health care providers. The ubiquity of death makes this a must read for anyone.

This two-part book about dying and death is based on Meina Dubetz's profound personal experiences as a nurse for over 30 years. Cleverly separated into two sections--the first section on care for others and the second section on care for oneself--the book provides many important and useful tips about how to cope with dying and death in a more dignified, graceful, and human way. Well worth the read!

About the Author

Meina Dubetz was born in the Netherlands and immigrated with her parent to Calgary, Alberta Canada at age three. When she was seventeen, Meina began working in a nursing home in the summer where she discovered her passion for caring for patients facing the end of their lives. This experience paved the way for her to become a Licensed Practical Nurse, and then later become a Registered Nurse. With over thirty years of Oncology Nursing experience in both in-patient and out-patient settings, Meina’s connection with her patients, their families, and her peers continue to move and inspire her. Meina describes her life being balanced by working casual nursing shifts in the summer while spending as much quality time with her three children and four grandchildren as possible. In the winter, Meina and her husband, Art, live in the warmth of the Phoenix area, Arizona where she writes, entertains guests, and makes time for personal growth and professional development opportunities. Meina earned her Certification in Oncology Nursing in 1996 and her Certification in Gerontology in 2000. She also has a certification as a Death-Life Coach, a certification in hypnotherapy, and is a trained Reiki Master. When Death Comes Knocking for Your Church Members will be Meina’s next book. If you have questions or stories you would like to share about supporting members of your congregation who face end of life circumstances, please email Meina at MeinaDubetz.com Contact Meina at MeinaDubetz.com Website www.MeinaDubetz.com Download the following FREE resources from Meina Dubetz’s website Five Leading Causes of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Nurses Five Tips to Calm Yourself at Any Moment START Template for Self-Care Plan --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
