Transforming the Culture of Dying

This chapter discusses the PDIA board's policy work and its growing commitment to the needs of disadvantaged and dispossessed individuals, groups, and communities. The PDIA board's early policy initiatives embraced the challenge of evaluating and advocating for change relating to dying and bereavement—at federal, state, and local levels. They also acknowledged the role of large health-care delivery systems, plus government reimbursement for services, as well as workforce development issues. PDIA work relating to underserved communities is best described as a patchy and rather idiosyncratic field of endeavor populated by activists high on commitment to service delivery, but with rather less inclination for research and publication.

Keywords:   Project on Death in America, PDIA, policy making, underserved communities, health care delivery
