Go Gentle into That Good Night: The Past, Present, and Future of End-of-Life Care. RAND Corporation. Adam E. Singer. May 26, 2015.
End-of-life care has received increasing attention in recent years as the baby boomers age and health care costs continue to rise. This attention has brought with it remarkable growth in the field and improvement in care, but there remains work to be done in order to more consistently deliver high quality, compassionate, and patient- and family-centered end-of-life care. The dissertation examines the past, present, and future of end-of-life care in order to shed light on the most effective ways to organize and deliver it. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
