Dying in America

Over the last 100 years, the process of dying has evolved from an event commonly occurring at home to one that mostly occurs in the sterility of an institution. Learn what you can do to die according to your wishes and what rights you have relative to physician-assisted death. Explore the impact of palliative care and hospice on the end of life, and look at the spiritual aspects from the point of view of patient and family. Case studies and examples will highlight historical and technological changes regarding dying in America, the right to refuse care, and values and relationships at the end of life.
