Abstract

Those who care for the dying often encounter unresolved issues in patients which are displacements of emotion, evasions of questions, and secondary matters being turned into protection against approaching death. There are many ways of intervening in this process of conflict to resolve issues, give back to the patient self-respect and a measure of control, and relate him or her to the environment of care. The following examples may be generalized to many cases.
