Synopsis: "New Rules for End of Life Care,” Barbara Karnes's most recent project, is starting conversations and garnering awards - in this country and around the world. It is a 25 minute film in which Barbara compassionately explains the stages of the dying process, talks about behavior changes as they pertain to food, sleep, and withdrawal, and addresses issues relating to the use of narcotics, addiction, and overdosing. “We don’t understand that there’s a normal, natural way of dying,” she says. “My goal is to help neutralize the fear that families and significant others bring to the bedside during the end of life experience.” 

The film has been named a 2015 Telly Award Winner for Health and Wellness and has earned a 2015 Communicator Award, Gold Award of Excellence: Film/Video on Social Issues. It won a 2015 Gold Award in Consumer Education Programs and a Merit for Books/ Publications from The Nation Mature Media Awards as well as a 2015 Gold Award in Total Health Information Programs from the National Health Information Awards. The film also has garnered an International Award of Merit from the International Film Festival for Environment, Health and Culture (IFFEHC) 2015. It's an official selection in the Global Health Film Festival 2015 in London. As well as Film Fest 52 in CT. We are thrilled and proud to be a part of the Awareness Festival 2015.
