    Hard Choices for Loving People: CPR, Artificial Feeding, Comfort Measures Only and the Elderly Patient Lowest new price: $44.69
    Lowest used price: $5.89
    Author: Hank Dunn

    "Hard Choices for Loving People" is written for people who are making medical treatment decisions in the face of a life-threatening illness. Over 650,000 copies have been sold and are being used in more than 3,000 hospitals, nursing homes and hospice programs nationwide. In "Hard Choices" Chaplain Dunn reviews the medical research on common treatments like resuscitation attempts and artificial feeding tubes. Often these treatments offer no benefit for frail, seriously ill patients. Hank Dunn believes that because of the little benefit offered by these treatments for some patients, decisions about their use are emotional and spiritual in their nature. The bottom line question patients and their families struggle with is "Can I let go?"
