Introduces and explores the concept of healthy death. Reviews the literature on the subject of death and dying, finding that efforts have sought to make death a "good" and "meaningful" experience. Concludes with a summary definition of healthy death, which centers on a proactive approach to death that involves certain healthy attitudes of the dying person. (Author/NB)
