A Time and Place: The Role of Social Workers in Improving End-of-Life Care
from Taylor & Francis
From Jan. 10:
Americans are living longer, but dying after a prolonged period of management of multiple chronic illnesses and functional disabilities. Despite waves of public and professional activity targeted toward improving care for the dying and supporting the families, gaps in care and challenges in end-of-life care persist. Contentious issues such as the so-called "death panels" or physician payment for discussion of advance directives and care wishes at the end of life; aid in dying; and regarding individuals who actively choose death are continually debated in the public media.
