Item Summary

Title: Cultural issues in death and dying.
Authors: Braun, Kathryn
Nichols, R
Issue Date: Dec 1996
Abstract: Although all of us experience death, not all of us think about death or respond to death the same way. This study begins to explore how cultural traditions, education, and tenure in Hawaii impact views of advanced directives, organ donation, suicide, and euthanasia. This information is useful to physicians who need to engage patients and families in discussions about death and end-of-life decision making.
