This Is Assisted Dying

This Is Assisted Dying : A Doctor's Story of Empowering Patients at the End of Life (Stefanie Green)

Dis, c'est quoi l'euthanasie

Dr. Stefanie Green has been forging new paths in the field of medical assis­tance in dying since 2016. In her land­mark memoir, Dr. Green reveals the reasons a patient might seek an assisted death, how the process works, what the event itself can look like, the reac­tions of those involved, and what it feels like to oversee procee­dings and admi­nister medi­ca­tions that hasten death. She describes the extra­or­di­nary people she meets and the unusual circum­stances she encoun­ters as she navi­gates the intri­cacy, inten­sity, and utter huma­nity of these powerful interactions.

Deeply authentic and power­fully emotional, This Is Assisted Dying contex­tua­lizes the myriad personal, profes­sional, and prac­tical issues surroun­ding assisted dying by brin­ging readers into the room with Dr. Green, sharing the voices of her patients, her colleagues, and her own narra­tive. As our popu­la­tion confronts issues of well­ness, inte­grity, agency and commu­nity, and how to live a connected, meaningful life, this progres­sive and compas­sio­nate book by a physi­cian at the fore­front of medi­cally assisted dying offers comfort and poten­tial relief.

This Is Assisted Dying will change the way people think about their choices at the end of life, and show that assisted dying is less about death than about how we wish to live.

In Search of Gentle Death

In Search of Gentle Death : The Fight for Your Right to Die With Dignity

Richard N. Côté
In Search of Gentle Death

Richard Cote' based this unique book on five years of inten­sive primary source research and more than one hundred in-depth inter­views with death-with-dignity pioneers, acti­vists, physi­cians, nurses, hospice workers, and their patients on four conti­nents. It is written in narra­tive style for a general audience and inten­sely docu­mented for the scholar. It illu­mi­nates the subject using 92 images and twelve hyper­links to exclu­sive YouTube video inter­views with death-with-dignity leaders world­wide. It explores the modern history of the death-with-dignity move­ment through the lives of its foun­ders, leaders, and acti­vists. Using personal case histo­ries from around the world, it also portrays the often heart-breaking conflict between the final wishes of those who are living or dying in pain and the reli­gious, medical, and laws which force them to spend their last days, months, or even years in avoi­dable pain and suffe­ring against their clearly-stated will.
