Film Aims To Normalize End Of Life Care

Every person may be on their own unique journey in life, but the ultimate destination is the same. Most of us don’t like to talk about it or plan for it but death is inevitable. 

A new film aims to take the taboo out of discussing death and end-of-life care. 


Morning Shift talks to Carolyn Jones, director of the film Defining Hope, which explores eight patients with life-threatening diseases and the nurses that guide them through their journey.
