Suzanne B. O’Brien here,
The “Ask a Death Doula” Podcast is a bi-weekly show hosted by Hospice and Oncology nurse Suzanne B. O’Brien. Ask a Death Doula will chronicle the Death Doula movement. We will interview leaders in this progressive movement from around the world as well as patients, families, and Death Doulas.
On this episode of “Ask a Death Doula”, I have the great pleasure of interviewing Barbara Karnes RN. Enjoy this lively discussion from this expert about “Pain at End of Life” – the title of her latest educational booklet. Barbara has insights and wisdom that every person can benefit from.
Barbara Karnes, RN, is an internationally recognized author, speaker, thought leader and expert on end of life care and the dynamics of dying. Barbara was recognized in 2018 as a Hospice Innovator by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and was named the 2015 International Humanitarian Woman of the Year by the World Humanitarian Awards.
Barbara’s experience as a hospice care provider at the bedside of hundreds of people, and as an administrator overseeing the care of thousands, led to the 1985 publication of Gone from My Sight: The Dying Experience. Affectionately referred to in the industry as the “little blue hospice book,” Gone from My Sight has sold over 25 million copies worldwide, is published in 12 languages, and remains the leading resource on the market today educating families on the signs of approaching death.
