A Good Death

A Good Death

Papers presented at a Leveson Seminar, published 2003.

The question of what we mean by "good" in the context of the end of our lives underlay this research symposium. Some papers reflect philosophical and social scientific research into what is the ultimate question for us all, while others come from a personal perspective of people anticipating their own death or accompanying others as they experience death.

This collection of papers comes from Kenneth Howse (Centre for Policy on Ageing), Dame Rachel Waterhouse (a governor of this Foundation), Brian Greet (former hospice chaplain), Beatrice Godwin (social worker and trainer with expertise in dementia), Barry Clark (hospital chaplain, reflecting on the role of the medical profession) and Leonie Kellaher (principal researcher, London Metropolitan University, on grief and graves).

Often humorous, always thoughtful, the papers lead the reader from an almost-forgotten tradition - the achievement of "a good death" - to some cutting-edge reflection on how we handle the very end of life.
