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.
