Abstract
Dying and Death in Canada offers a comprehensive, up-to-date examination of dying, death, and bereavement from a Canadian perspective.
The third edition includes two new chapters that highlight trends and provide assessments of end-of-life care in Canada. Several new topics are covered, including assisted death, emerging trends in funerary practices and memorialization, and changing conceptualizations and interventions in the grieving process. The book also offers individual perspectives on dying and death from funeral directors, nurses, police officers, and others, told in their own words. An appendix lists recent and classic movies, television programs, documentary films, and other visual media sources dealing with dying and death.
