Dignified death

Dignified death is a somewhat elusive concept often related to suicide. One factor that has been cited as a core component of dignified death is maintaining a sense of control.[1] Another view is that a truly dignified death is an extension of a dignified life.[2] There is some concern that assisted suicide does not guarantee a dignified death, since some patients may experience complications such as nausea and vomiting.[3] There is some concern that age discrimination denies the elderly a dignified death.[4]
