MARIETTA, Ga. (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
In their new book “Soul Service: A Hospice Guide to the Emotional and Spiritual Care for the Dying” (published by Balboa Press), authors Robert Cowgill, MD and Christine Cowgill speak to the medical professional, lay person, dying person and family member about treating the dying from a holistic perspective.
The Cowgills take a more holistic approach to dying, providing a detailed navigation to spiritual and complementary care, as well as examine the phenomenon of metaphysical experiences at death. Together they offer ideas on how readers can honor a loved one’s passing and assist with the process of how to choose the best hospice.
“Soul Service” highlights the voices of medical professionals working from the highest level of service, acting as a useful resource guide to the myriad organizations that are currently available to assist with the dying process.
“I would like the reader to leave with a deeper level of understanding of what they can do personally to make their patient or loved ones passing a better death experience for all concerned,” Christine states.” I would like to tell the readers that based on the research done for the book there is very little medical training being done in the areas of spiritual, emotional and palliative care to the dying. With our aging and dying population this is a needed area of knowledge for our upcoming doctors and nurses. Only eight medical schools were identified as currently offering this coursework, more need to follow suit.”
