New Film: Defining Hope in Life and Death

A new film by award-winning documentary filmmaker Carolyn Jones debuts nationwide on November 1, 2017, to coincide with National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.

Defining Hope in Life and Death follows nurses and their patients with life-threatening illnesses as they make choices about how they want to live, how much medical technology they can accept, what they hope for, and how that hope evolves when life is threatened.

The film is supported in part by a grant from the American Nurses Foundation. Bring the film to your city, town, workplace, and home. Learn more at
