Rethinking Death Education as Part of Public Health Policy

In today’s society, death and dying are still taboo themes. People die at hospitals in most Western countries, surrounded by health professionals and cutting-edge technology, but with little true humanisation of care. The movement of death from the house to hospitals, which began in the 1960s of the previous century, has had social and cultural ramifications for how we approach death. To consider the necessity for death education, we will have to save the work of some professionals, such as Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (1926-2004). We provide a set of ideas for implementing death education as part of public health policy based on the work of this archetypal author and other studies over time.
