About this title

Synopsis:

Candidly written, ""On Death Without Dignity: The Human Impact of Technological Dying"", attempts to re-humanize the inevitable biological occurrence called dying. It is Moller's view that through the advancement of medicalized technology, has come the demise of the contemporary dying process. The oncological death is reflected as failure in the part of modern medicine, the physician, and the hospital; yet the patient experiences alienation, stigma, helplessness, and normlessness. Yet as a culture the current societal approach to the dying-silent avoidance-only adds to this alienation. Society has failed to provide the necessary rules for this universal, social, and biological event.

Review:

A compelling case for rethinking the way we use technology in oncology, especially in the last months of life. -- Mary Jo D. Good, Harvard Medical School

I strongly recommend this stimulating book for institutional and public libraries and practitioners in all the helping and healing professions. -- William Lamers, Journal of the National Cancer Institute
