Transforming the Culture of Dying

This chapter explores PDIA-funded solutions to problems in the delivery of end-of-life care. It considers the various service innovations across inpatient and domiciliary settings, as well as new developments in clinical practice relating to people with advanced disease in the face of death. Undertaken by numerous PDIA grantees and scholars, these were the testing grounds for new ideas, some of which would prove worthy of wider dissemination and “roll out”—moving beyond the status of demonstration projects to have a wider influence on the entire American health-care system.

Keywords:   Project on Death in America, PDIA, end-of-life care, palliative care, service delivery, clinical practice, patient services
