How a Nurse Uses the Law to Ease Patients' Suffering

Creator: OSF - Bringing Justice to Health 

Descroption: Mercy Owiti is a palliative care nurse in Nyeri, Kenya. But caring for patients at the end of life often means more than just pain relief. That's why the Kenya Hospices and Palliative Care Association began training health care providers, like Mercy, to become paralegals. Addressing the legal needs of patients and families offers peace of mind and improves health, so that human dignity, in illness and at the end of life, remains at the center.
