Tune in to my conversation with Christy Wright, RN, BSN and former Certified Hospice Palliative Care Nurse as we talk about End of Life issues. According to a source that Christy shared with me, 90% of people surveyed say they think it’s very important to talk to their family about end of life care.  But only 27% have actually done so.  In Part 2 of my interview, Christy the obstacles that people face in having conversations with family about death and end of life care wishes.  She shares resources like “The Conversation Project” by Ellen Goodman which is a tool for self-exploring end of life care wishes and sharing these wishes with family.  To quote Christy, “The body is made for the end of life, just as it’s made to be born.  The question is, how do we support these processes?”
