New Book Release - Taking Care of Our Business: What They Didn’t Tell Us About End-of-Life Care


North Carolina based researchers and authors Joel Bryant and Gratia Wright in Taking Care of Our Business: What They Didn’t Tell Us About End-of-Life Care, provide a thorough look at the reasons African Americans do not include hospice in end-of-life consideration.

Greensboro, NC, October 25, 2007 --(PR.com)-- According to a study conducted by the National Hospice & Palliative Organization (NHPO), of the nearly 1 million individuals who used the service in 2005, less than 10% were African American. Researchers and authors Joel Bryant and Gratia Wright in Taking Care of Our Business: What They Didn’t Tell Us About End-of-Life Care, provide a thorough look at the reasons African Americans do not include hospice in end-of-life consideration. Drawing from extensive research conducted by the NHPO, citing numerous references and readings, the volume is written in easily understood layman’s terms, and offers the reader a clear look at hospice from its beginnings in 1970 and African American utilization rates from the perspective of the faith and medical community as well as the community at large. Those seeking end-of-life assistance for family and loved ones will benefit from the variety of suggestions and resources included in the text.
