Health Decisions and Care at the End of Life is a rich resource authored by the Catholic Health Alliance of Canada. This book explains how someone might deal with end-of-life decisions in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church. It addresses the issues that arise during this last stage of caregiving and offers a guide to understanding the ethics needed for rational thinking when individuals are faced with those vital decisions. It touches on important concepts such as palliative care, medical treatments and procedures and how to best assist the dying — for doctors and nurses, for families and friends and for concerned Catholics everywhere. This is an essential resource at a time when the country is in the midst of a debate over euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide.Sister Nuala Kenny, MD
