Death and Dying Review Series
This review series addresses some of the key issues surrounding our understandings of death and dying, which provide captivating insights and highlight some important concerns of researchers working in this broad and varied field.
Whilst defining death is important, the reviews also seek to look at the bigger picture. Covering topics from social death to treatment decisions, and death by neurological criteria to the implications of circulatory death in organ donation, we also consider near death experiences in this series.
The reviews are freely available to read until the 30th June 2017.
