The Hospice Farewell: Ideological Perspectives of Its Professional Practitioners.
Rinaldi, Anoel; Kearl, Michael C.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v21 n4 p283-300 1990
Questioned 48 hospice experts to elicit group judgments about hospice ideology, control over one's own death trajectory, and hospice's relevance for older individuals. Although high rate of consensus was obtained on many issues, little evidence of coherent ideology could be detected linking notions of hospice origins, issues of patient control, and suitability of hospice care for older individuals.
