Editorial Reviews


"LGBTQ-Inclusive Hospice and Palliative Care provides thoughtful guidance for healthcare practitioners to optimize care and best meet the needs of their seriously ill patients, partners and families.  Bravo to Kim Acquaviva for the comprehensive and high-quality book.  It's a 'must read.'"

 - Amy BermanSenior Program Officer, The John A. Hartford Foundation

"Informative, comprehensive, helpful, accurate, and much needed among professionals working in palliative and hospice care. The author's passion for and competence in the subject are evident throughout the book. I applaud the author's choice and ability to present the content using plain language, which made material easy to read and assimilate."
 - Renato Barucco, Coordinator of the Program for the Study of LGBT Health,
Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute

From the Author

Before I wrote this book, I was always a bit curious about how people turned an idea into a published book.  The following is intended to satisfy the curiosity of readers wondering the same thing:
  • In September 2015, the publisher contacted me about the possibility of writing a book and I signed a contract with a deadline to deliver the finished manuscript by September 2016. Shortly after getting under contract, I decided to apply for a long-overdue sabbatical.  I was granted a 6-month sabbatical (January 1 - July 1, 2016) from the George Washington University. 
  • I started outlining the book in Scrivener in October 2015 but didn't actually begin writing until January 4, 2016.  I used Suzanna's Pacemaker ( to set daily target word counts for writing.
  • I wanted to make sure the content in the book was not only accurate but also inclusive of the diverse perspectives represented by each of the target disciplines, so after the manuscript was drafted in Scrivener and exported to Microsoft Word, seven content experts reviewed and provided detailed feedback via a reviewer portal set up using  In addition, I harnessed the power of social media - Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook in particular - to gather personal anecdotes from hospice and palliative care professionals, patients and families to include throughout the book.
