About-

How do we make those ever so difficult end-of-life choices when suffering from an incurable, terminal illness? How can the last phase of our life be managed in a proactive and self-respecting way? What options are open to us? Do we have to leave it to fate, to a deity, to mother nature, or to others to decide how those last weeks or months will be played out? Or do we have a say in it? Can we determine for ourselves both the timing and manner of our dying?

Your Final Choice walks you through a series of ethical/pastoral questions which you can use to form a judgment about what you want for yourself when thinking about how the drama of your last days is played out.

Endorsements & Reviews-

The key to achieving a good and dignified death is control and Kenneth Ralph puts you in the driver's seat so the end of your life will be your choice, under your control.
Rob Moodie, Professor of Public Health, University of Melbourne

We all want to live in Australia where the law allows us to live and die according to our conscience. Ken Ralph invites us to clarify our moral values and to rely on them when faced with an end of life decision for ourselves or someone we love. Bravo!
Dr Leslie Cannold, Medical ethicist and author

I have now read this book twice, each time at a single sitting! It provides an easily accessible framework for consideration of the issues around the end of life and language for expressing and justifying personal choices, whatever they may be. I wish all my patients had it and talked to their families about it.
Dr Lindy Jeffree, Brisbane neurosurgeon & brain cancer specialist
