Provides guidance to renal and palliative care professionals dealing with patients with advanced kidney disease who are approaching end of life.

The book describes the tools used to achieve a good death including advance care planning, symptom control law and ethics, recognising dying, withdrawal of treatment, and a holistic approach to patient care.
