"Death and taxes – two things that we all inevitably face. We all have our experiences with taxes frequently, but our experience with death fortunately comes less often. However, both experiences can be quite miserable. While it may be difficult to make the experience of paying taxes better, there does seem to be no doubt that the experiences with death could be better. Whether it is the individual facing death, his or her family and friends or caregivers – everyone involved could benefit from better experiences" Vivek Goel's introduction to HealthcarePapers Vol. 14 No. 1 2014 | Physician-Assisted Death


Whose Death Is It Anyway? Perspectives on End-of-Life in Canada by Maureen Taylor and Sandra Martin
People die every minute in Canada, but how they die has become increasingly contentious as the demand for physician-assisted death and euthanasia has become louder and more widespread.
