Description

To understand more about final conversations (communication between loved ones from the point of terminal diagnosis until death), 49 children/adolescents provided final conversation advice for other youth and for the dying person. Advice for fellow youth included (a) confirming the relationship with the dying person, (b) remaining positive throughout the death process, and (c) using external support networks. Advice for the dying person included (a) confirming the relationship with the youth, (b) engaging in open, honest communication with youth, and (c) confirming the identities of the youth. The main implication is that youth should be included in the death process.
