Hi Miriam, that is all very true and well explained. I want to tie two points together that you brought up. The pressesion with yourself is very important to prepare yourself for any scenario including that of neardeath. In those cases not only should you prepare emotionally as the subject of matter is tougher but also prepare to interpret to family members as more often than not patients in that condition will be acompanied. So instead of skipping it is actually more important to do presession so family members know what to expect and it doesnt get messy with he said and she said and not everyone feels like they can all talk at the same time. With bigger groups its easiest to have them assign 1 person to do the speaking and the flow is smoother.
