Reviews

"This book-birthed during the pandemic of the century-is filled with painful truths about the American healthcare system that sound the clarion call for change."
-JESSICA ZITTER, MD, author of Extreme Measures

"Urgent, powerful, healing. US healthcare has reached a crisis point where those who care for others need care for themselves to recover from epidemic levels of burnout. Grief on the Front Lines shows how that caring work can and must be done."
-THERESA BROWN, PhD, RN, author of the New York Times best seller The Shift

"Grief on the Front Lines is a clarion call for a more compassionate approach to medicine-not only for our patients, but for ourselves as medical professionals."
-ANTHONY MAZZARELLI, MD, Co-president and CEO of Cooper University Health Care and co-author of Compassionomics

"Rachel Jones takes us into the lives of the remarkable men and women who stand with us at times of loss and death and brings their own pain to life. A harrowing and unforgettable book."
-MICHAEL SHAPIRO, professor of journalism at Columbia University

"Honoring the experiences and attendant grief of healthcare workers, Rachel Jones provides well-sourced documentation of the events of the pandemic and provides a call to action to bring a more compassionate healthcare system into being."

-VERA DE CHALAMBERT, MTS, religious scholar, writer, and spiritual storyteller

[This book] provides a much-needed exploration of the effects of trauma and grief on the very people we rely on to help us heal ... and shares strategies that healthcare workers can employ to support their own healing and give them strength to continue their work."
