Dying at the Margins

Oxford University Press

The work of the authors’ group at the Balm of Gilead was “organic” palliative and hospice care that grew out of their attempt to provide standard medical care for cancer patients and for those with HIV/AIDS. From their work with home-hospice programs, they saw how patients who were discharged from the hospital thrived physically, as well as psychosocially and spiritually. The goal was to provide an opportunity for healing, not to be confused with being cured, for all of their seriously ill patients, not just those in the last days or weeks of life.

Keywords:   social injustice, racism, class divide, health disparity, rural poor, urban poor, Balm of Gilead, cultural humility, religion, spirituality
