To Comfort Always is an excellent book for the nurse who wants to learn and understand the aspects of end-of-life care. While experience is an excellent teacher, having knowledge and tools available helps the nurse to provide the best care for patients and families and to be fully engaged in the process. Norlander views the roles of the nurse as skilled clinician, advocate, and guide. Each chapter provides insight into specific patient issues through these 3 lenses and provides tools that are of benefit in practice. Providing end-of-life care is stressful for everyone; knowledge and resources can help.
