"One way that Dr. Emanuel suggests we improve end of life care is by starting sooner. “We need to be willing to acknowledge 6 or 12 months beforehand that a patient is not doing well and that death is going to happen,” he says. This is where doulas can contribute to improving care, because we can work with a patient and family very productively many months to a year before death is likely. When a dying person and family can work on questions of meaning and legacy, the resulting sense of purpose can lessen some of the symptoms that drive dying people to the hospital and acute care units."-Henry Fersko-Weiss of INELDA
