Death And Dying

“The Good Death”


For this discussion, I want you to read the section in Chapter 15 on Death and Dying and find the segment called “In search of a “Good death.” 

Briefly summarize this section in 2-3 paragraph.

· What do you consider a “good death?” in other words what would you like it to be for you?

*I know this is something we don’t like to talk about (which is a big difference in comparison to other cultures around the world) Please try to move past that barrier of not discussing it and take a moment to consider it if you haven’t yet done so in your life and then share your thoughts about it.

Feel free to include other topics of palliative care, hospice, euthanasia, etc.
