Barbara Karnes- End of Life Educator and Hospice Nurse- Ep. 20


Barbara and I had a fascinating conversation about the end of life and how she helps people and their families make that transition. Barbara is a pioneer in the hospice field, getting involved in the mid-80s when most people couldn't even pronounce hospice. She is truly a woman on a mission.

Barbara is the author of several books including what has become known as "The Little Blue Book" The official title is: "Gone from My Sight- The Dying Process." It remains the standard in the hospice industry nearly 35 years after its introduction. It has sold over 25 million copies. But, this book was just the beginning of Barbara's body of work to educate us on the death process.

While at the bedside of hundreds of people during the dying process, Hospice Pioneer Barbara Karnes noticed that each death was following a near identical script. Each person was going through the stages of death in almost the same manner and most families came to her with similar questions. These realizations led Barbara to sit down and write Gone From My Sight, "The Little Blue Book" that changed the hospice industry.

Gone From My Sight is the original, and remains the most widely used, patient/family educational booklet on the signs of approaching death. It has been in print continuously since 1985 and has sold over 35 million copies world wide. With its publication and distribution, Barbara created one of the most important tools in the end of life movement today.
